As a not-for-profit organisation, the association strives to:
Promote the professional development of the industry through awards, training, workshops and conference
Facilitate interaction and collaboration among its members through regular networking events
Act as a platform for dialogue on regulatory and policy issues pertaining to VC and PE through data research, feedback and consultation with members and regulatory authorities
Build linkages to centres of VC and PE activities in the region through active participation at regional and global VC & PE Initiatives
