The private sector has great potential to drive social change. We have seen how investments in thriving businesses, along with the support of experts and professionals, have opened up opportunities needed to achieve sustainable and lasting impact without compromising financial gain. This is also what we have seen in Indonesia in terms of rising social entrepreneurship and impact investing activities.
As the direction for the global economy runs parallel with investment in impact within the region, Ford Foundation seeks to synergize stakeholders and market players by facilitating dialogues, uniting visions and initiating connections through IMPACT IDN. Started with its collaboration in 2020 with Communications 4 Change, Idelaju and Katadata, IMPACT IDN was born as an amplifier to impact investing activities in Indonesia, focusing on raising public awareness through talks, aggregated news, online discussions, and social media activities.
This year, IMPACT IDN is powered by ANGIN’s own Impact Investing and Entrepreneurship Think Tank (INTRA), to further stress the IMPACT IDN activities to knowledge generation and collaborative knowledge harnessings for the more systemic efforts investing in impact.
