Please Note: GAIN has been put on hold

As a family of networks that aims to move capital toward impact effectively, we would like to inform you that, after careful consideration, we have decided to suspend the GAIN (Global Alliance of Impact Networks) platform for the time being. This decision has been made to reassess and refine our approach.
Despite the temporary suspension of the GAIN platform, we are pleased to announce that the four networks—Impact Europe, AVPN (Asia), AVPA (Africa), and Latimpacto (Latin America)—will continue to collaborate as sister networks. Each network will remain dedicated to advancing the cause of impact in their respective geographical regions.
This strategic decision reflects our commitment to maximizing global impact through various forms of capital, even as we recalibrate the GAIN platform. By uniting our efforts, we can leverage each partner network’s unique strengths and insights to drive positive change in Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
We express our gratitude for the ongoing support from our stakeholders, partners, and the broader community.  We understand the importance of our collective mission and remain steadfast in our commitment to fostering impactful change in diverse regions worldwide.
While the GAIN platform is currently on hold, we look forward to reviving this initiative at a later stage. Our goal is and will continue to be to bring together the best in global innovative practices to create a more robust and effective platform for maximizing impact across borders, taking advantage of the 1,100 providers of capital we gather as a family of networks, that invest across the continuum of capital, offering a unique value to them to maximize their impact. 
We appreciate your understanding during this transitional period and value your continued support as we work towards our shared vision of a more sustainable and impactful future.
