Gratitude to all who joined the groundbreaking #ANDESouthAsiaConvening 2023!

Center staging our theme of ‘Accelerating Action in the Region’, this year’s South Asia Convening looked at the role that the region can play in fostering innovation, growth and sustainability. Throughout the three days of convening, we looked at the market opportunities, stakeholders, funding landscape, different growth models and ways to support small businesses and women entrepreneurs in South Asia. We also discussed the role of cities in addressing the problem of climate change, circular solutions for textiles and ways of catalysing cross-border finance to support the small & growing business ecosystem.

Our panelists from across the world contributed with their expert insights and audience came in with their sharp questions and comments. All three days of the convening were really fulfilling and we thank our partners for their valuable support. We also thank the panelists and audience for taking time out to join us.
