"The conference was well attended which shows the interest in the Philippines' PE but also the profile of AVCJ attracting large pool of audience."

"Congratulations to AVCJ for a successful, well-attended inaugural Philippines conference, and congratulations to the Philippines' PE/VC industry for graduating to a stage where AVCJ sees fit to host a Philippines-dedicated forum. The construction of the programs/sessions was just right, and AVCJ picked a superb MC in Dennis Montecillo. In general, the composition of the panels was excellent.The interview format for the keynote was innovative and refreshing."
