WBAF and Krapina Zagorje County, Croatia signed a Memorandum of Understanding where both parties agreed to support the development of business angel activities by facilitating deals, enabling networking opportunities, and sharing information on business opportunities of interest to WBAF members and the business ecosystem of Krapina Zagorje County.
WBAF is dedicated to enabling world entrepreneurs to become familiar with the culture of partnership and to helping rising entrepreneurs by giving them access to both domestic and international financial resources. Similarly, the County aims at strengthening the start-up community in Croatia by bringing together entrepreneurs and angel investors from Croatia and abroad, thus stimulating the start-up and growth of SMEs, along with supporting job creation.
The County’s project to convert the 200-year-old Stubički Golubovec castle into a Science Education and Innovation Centre – ZEZ – has been characterized as unique global attraction that will yield positive regional and cross-sectoral effects in science, education, economy, tourism and culture. WBAF president, Baybars Altuntas, has invited the County Prefect, Mr Željko Kolar, to lead the County delegation to the WBAF World Congress in Istanbul in February 2019 and to introduce the ZEZ Centre to the world community of investors.
