ABOUT 7th AFI ANNUAL FORUM
Launched in 2012, Action For India (AFI) is a not-for-profit organization, inspired and guided by Sam Pitroda, Former Advisor to the Prime Minister of India and supported by visionaries like Desh Deshpande over the last years. The AFI Forum is the annual flagship event of Action For India, and is a exclusive “invite-only” gathering that brings together 100 leading social entrepreneurs along with 100 “influencers” drawn from the realms of impact investment, philanthropy, government, technology and public policy. We have organized six annual Forums during the past six years, beginning in 2012. Every year, out of the 100 invited entrepreneurs, the top 5 are selected for the Silicon Valley Trek, an immersive, all-expense covered trip to Silicon Valley to explore and further business and impact possibilities with key stakeholders.
We are back with our 7th AFI Annual Forum, this year in partnership with LetsEndorse. Focusing on the 6 sectors of Agriculture, Education, Healthcare, Energy, Financial Inclusion and Livelihoods, the theme of this year is “Sustainable Development Goals and Impact Investing” and through the two-days long immersive experience, we shall explore the role of Impact Investment in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The Forum shall be held on October 4th & 5th (Thursday & Friday) at the beautiful and world-class Imaginarium, Ali Gunjan in Alibaug, near Mumbai.
