Bintang's Inaugural Impact Conference: Building a Better Future Together



In celebration of B Lab’s B Corp Month in March 2024, Bintang Capital Partners is organising our first ever impact conference!


The B Corp movement was started in 2006 by three friends, Jay Coen Gilbert, Bart Houlahan and Andrew Kassoy in Pennsylvania and has since grown exponentially.


As of January 2024, the US alone boasts 1,857 B Corps, while the UK is home to 1,819.


Within ASEAN, whilst a fewer 88 companies have the B Corp certification, the numbers have been rising rapidly over the last few years.


Bintang Capital Partners proudly became a B Corp in May 2023, and through the work we do we hope to help many more fast-growing, innovative and impactful companies become B Corps too.


Our first conference, Building a Better Future Together, is geared towards increasing awareness of this very dynamic movement as well as fostering a better understanding of the certification itself.


Join us on 6 March 2024, from 9:30 AM to 6:00 PM — venue details will be shared with confirmed attendees. 


Co-organised with B Market Builder SEA Southeast Asia, our conference features renowned thought leaders at the forefront of impact investing and sustainability.


Be inspired by an exclusive lineup of international speakers, including speakers and moderators listed below:

·      YB Tuan Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, Minister of Natural Resources and Environmental Sustainability, Malaysia

·      YB Chin Tong Liew, Deputy Minister of Investment, Trade and Industry of Malaysia

·      Dawn Chan, CEO of the Center for Impact Investing & Practices Asia (CIIP) & Managing Director of Investments, Temasek Trust Capital

·      Isik O., Director of Certification & Verification of B Lab Global

·      Tunku Alizakri Alias, Chairman of Penjana Kapital

·      Prof Dr. Kian-Ming Ong, Director - Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) of Taylor’s University


Here's a teaser for what awaits you at the conference:

·      Diverse perspectives: Gain insights from various stakeholders within the impact ecosystem – companies, regulators, advisors, and B Lab Global itself

·      Public and private journeys: Understand the motivations behind B Corp certification for both private and public listed companies

·      Practical guidance: Dive deep into the B Impact Assessment, certification framework, and the unique challenges and opportunities faced by B Corps

·      Network and connect: Interact with established and aspiring B Corps, including Bintang's portfolio companies
