Webinar: Access emerging Asia-Pacific markets with ADB Ventures

December 2, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm ACST

Scale your technology and diversify your market reach whilst delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals in Asia-Pacific

Wednesday 2nd December 2020, 1.30pm to 3.00pm ACST – Webinar

Do you have a capable management team that is looking for help identifying market expansion and scale up opportunities in Asia Pacific emerging markets? Do you clearly understand the opportunities, challenges and risks involved in entering these markets?

Come and hear from ADB Ventures, the venture capital arm of the Asian Development Bank on the opportunities to access support and investment. ADB Ventures (A$85m Fund) supports and invests in growth businesses with technologies that solve big problems in emerging Asia Pacific. It is primarily focused on technologies for climate mitigation, climate resilience, and gender impact in four verticals: cleantech and clean energy, agritech, inclusive fintech and insurtech, and healthtech.

Asian Development Bank Ventures (ADBV) is seeking Australian technology companies that are ready to solve Asia Pacific’s most pressing development challenges. This is an opportunity for scalable SMEs to better understand the challenges they are seeking to solve and grow their businesses in developing markets.

“In early 2020, ADB launched its first venture investment platform, ADB Ventures. It’s a venture capital investor with a difference. Like all VC investors, ADB Ventures will pursue commercial returns, but it will target investments in companies and technologies that deliver development impact in emerging markets in Asia and the Pacific. ADB Ventures can also provide pre-investment grant support and guidance to businesses exploring and piloting strategies to build commercial scale in these markets.”
