Walk in my Shoes: interview with Doug Miller the Founder and Former Chair of the EVPA, and Chair of the International Venture Philanthropy Center
With a background in investment banking and private equity, Doug Miller applied his experience, skills, and passion to help establish venture philanthropy (VP) as a proven model in the UK, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
In 2002 he organized a group of 27 private equity individuals from 9 countries to go on a bike ride and then trek in Vietnam to raise money for mine clearing operations. During this trip, the participants talked about their philanthropy and their concerns about how much higher impact could be achieved. This led to a discussion of venture philanthropy and ultimately to the creation of 4 networks - EVPA, incubated in Doug’s home but now headquartered in Brussels; AVPN, headquartered in Singapore; AVPA, headquartered in Nairobi and Latimpacto, headquartered in Bogota. Doug was Chairman of the first two organizations and the primary funder in the subsequent organizations.
