The world is noisy place. Holding Space, KrASIA's first debate-talkshow, zeroes in on insightful discourse in a safe space.
MOTION: This house believes that all VC investments should prioritize social impact
ESG or impact investing has become increasingly mainstream in the investment landscape. As more VCs adopt impact metrics, we seek to look at both sides of the equation - should impact always be placed first? And if not, why?
We bring together four folks to engage in a friendly debate. On proposition, we have a partner at a leading impact VC firm and an impact-VC-turned-CIO of a mental health startup. Defending the opposition, a Gen Z VC and executive director of one of SEA's oldest VCs take the stage.
