Another year, another fascinating and informative conference: ANGIN attended the Transformational Business Network Asia (TBN) Conference 2018, which was filled with amazing speakers, enterprises, and delegates from all over the world convening to discuss impact. Enterprises all over Southeast Asia came and exhibited their products and services in the expo area. From sustainability to fintech, crafts to food and beverage, it is clear that South East Asian enterprises are creative in ways beyond belief to deliver meaningful impact. Meanwhile, the ANGIN team was able to reconnect with international partners, friends, and contacts in the social impact sphere, discussing updates, progress, and new partnership ideas for the coming year.
ANGIN was also invited to attend a breakfast gathering organised by Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) that was organised alongside the TBN Asia Conference. The meeting was hosted by ANDE and Emory University to bring together accelerator and incubator programs in Indonesia and the South East Asia region to share information about different GALI initiatives and explore possible collaborations in the region. The room was filled with practitioners and expert from the region with diverse backgrounds.
