The Asia Investment Conference fosters strategic in-depth discussions amongst investors and key business decision makers.
Since our inception in 2016, we have curated numerous high level events convening former ministers, government officials, including senior members from the public and private sectors.
The events are led and anchored by IJK Capital Partners, an investment and advisory firm with offices in Shanghai, Singapore and Hong Kong. These initiatives have played an instrumental role in bridging resources and the best minds across industries, supplementing IJK's core business.
The key objectives of these summits are to:
Engage industry experts, key business stakeholders and friends in a lifelong intellectual and co-generative dialogue with the wider business community
Leverage the collective experiences and insights shared at these events - enabling key decision makers, boards and entrepreneurs to brainstorm and formulate actionable strategies for solving problems in our increasingly complex and inter-connected business environment
A timeline of our initiatives.
We led and curated our first LPGP roundtable in Macau convening investors within Asia to discuss and share their views on macro trends relating to private equity fundraising in the Greater China.
The turnout was just over 80 delegates.
The positive feedback received from our November 2016 event led us to formally institutionalize our conference initiative in Singapore with the launch of the "Southeast Asia Private Equity Conference" (SEAPEC) held in Sentosa One15 Marina, gathering over 160 delegates comprising a mix of PE/VC funds as well as select LP investors in Southeast Asia.
Following our successful inaugural event in Singapore, we made our foray back into the Greater China market, co-organizing the 2nd Guangzhou-Foshan Technology and Innovation Forum alongside Mapletree Investments and the Foshan government.
The summit, in collaboration with United Business Institutes, took place over 2-days and attracted over 2,000 start-ups, venture capital funds and notable Silicon Valley luminaries.
As the breadth of investors expanded, "SEAPEC" is re-branded to "Asia Investment Conference", reflecting the diversification of asset classes beyond private equity as well as the geographical reach beyond Southeast Asia. We hosted our second Singapore Summit under the AIC brand, attracting 300+ institutional investors, funds and corporates.
We also introduced the very first roundtable sessions at this event to foster greater discussion and interaction amongst speakers and delegates spanning multiple industry verticals.
In collaboration with the United Business Institutes, AIC is brought back to Shanghai gathering with a unique blend of entrepreneurs, local investors, funds and family offices.
Under the AIC umbrella, IJK Capital Partners and GL Capital visits Baltimore and DC with US investors to discuss cross border opportunities with investors and family offices.
IJK Capital Partners and United Business Institutes kick off the third annual flagship Singapore Summit at the Ritz-Carlton with guests of honour ESM Goh Chok Tong, former prime minister of Singapore and HE Tom Lembong, Chairman of BKPM, former Trade Minister of Indonesia. The event received overwhelming response, attracting over 400 delegates.
In collaboration with Mastery Asia, IJK Capital Partners, launches the inaugural "Talks@AIC" in Kuala Lumpur, discussing the convergence of PE/VC trends in Malaysia.
