QBAC+ has quickly achieved global popularity, making its way from the London Stock Exchange to the Qatar Development Bank to the Turkey Regional Development Agencies and to WBAF 2019. Now the programme is scheduled to run at the Bracak Manor of Croatia for anyone wishing to become an angel investor, 24 – 28 June 2019.
