The World Business Angels Investment Forum, an affiliated partner of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion, invites investors to discover the great opportunities offered by 100 excellent entrepreneurs from 24 countries


WBAF 2021 is the biggest event of the world’s early and post-early stage equity and capital markets. It is a unique opportunity not only for angel investors, VCs and policymakers to exchange ideas on best practice and collaboration, but also for industry and business leaders to forge new connections and pursue business opportunities.

WBAF 2021 provides an established platform for executives of private equity funds, wealth management institutions, family offices, banks, stock exchanges, science and technology parks, incubation centres, acceleration centres, investment promotion agencies, economic development boards, chambers of commerce and industries, municipalities, innovation agents and industry bodies to further develop rich, meaningful global networks.


The Congress therefore offers industry leaders global access to the best and the brightest in the business world.

An affiliated partner of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI), the World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF) is aiming to ease access to finance globally.

World Congress WBAF 2021 will feature 32 panel discussions at 6 summits:


  • Europe Summit
  • Latin America Summit
  • Asia Summit
  • North America Summit
  • MENA Summit
  • Africa Summit

At WBAF 2021, we are allocating a special day where selected 100 startups, scaleups, and high-growth businesses will each have a virtual area to showcase their business and to pitch their businesses on the Global Fundraising Stage (GFRS) on 20 February.

The 2021 GFRS is supported by the WBAF Angel Investment Fund, whose mission is to invest in startups and scaleups who pitch on the GFRS. The aim is to showcase the world’s top startups and scaleups, which, typically, are funded companies in the process of raising € 50K — € 3M, with the ultimate goal of globalizing.

GFRS participants will have a free Investment Readiness Workshopfrom theWBAF Business School. They will also have a free Investment Readiness Workshop.

They will be opening exhibition booths and pitching on the virtual Global Fundraising Stage GFRS 2021 of the World Congress of Angel Investors WBAF 2021.

As responsible investor, you understand that these startups are more important now than ever before for their ability to boost our economies, so we invite you to invest in their startup ventures as part of a robust response to COVID-19. These startup ventures will create new jobs and social justice in the world.
