We received our first institutional investment from CVC Capital Partners (“CVC”). Since then, CVC has served on our Board of Directors and is a strategic partner of SVhk. CVC was an early supporter of our portfolio venture Playtao Education’s afterschool education programme. CVC has also been the sponsor of the Asia Social Innovation Award, in which their investment team also serves as mentors to early-stage social entrepreneurs.
UBS is our Major Corporate Sponsor and Key Supporter in delivering the Social Ventures Marketplace programme, a year-round skill-based volunteering initiative in which UBS staff contribute their professional skills to train aspiring social entrepreneurs and incubate early stage social start-ups.
