  • At the Global Fundraising Stage (GFRS), establishing a superior deal flow pipeline that connects investors with superior startups (typically, funded companies in the process of raising € 100K-€ 1M);

  • Through training and mentorship, to help the next generation of companies that are seeking to raise funding in order to grow and scale their businesses;

  • By bridging qualified investors and entrepreneurs and creating a global community that attracts the best deal flow, the most knowledgeable experts and fosters continuous and evolving interactions amongst community members.

It is the first WBAF committee dedicated to start-ups, and its focus is on propelling start-ups, scaleups, SMEs and high-growth businesses.


This group includes global luminaries from the realms of business, art, politics, and philanthropy to shape and shake the future of the universal entrepreneurship ecosystem and start-up economy through global partnerships.

The plan for 2021 takes into account the Sustainable Development Agenda, and the Global Startup Committee will consider impact-oriented projects from around the world.


Committee members work in close cooperation with each other to help shape regional and global agendas in the global and regional investment markets.

Through this cooperation, they all contribute to the global knowledge base and benefit from it as they develop the focus of Forum initiatives.
