In January 2020, Pitch at the Beach will be back, for three incredible days, the perfect event to bring together the best of two worlds: Fun and business! being the most disruptive international investment event where the most attractive StartUps and ScaleUps meet, as well as 50+ Investors, Angels Investors, Angel Clubs, Venture Capitals and Family Offices, from the five continents, all this taking place in Tulum, one of the most paradisiacal tourist destinations in Latin America.
The top 3 winners from Pitch at the Beach also will automatically have a place to pitch at Global Fundraising Stage – World Congress of Angel Investors WBAF 2020 in Istanbul Turkey on 18 February 2020.
The 2020 Global Fundraising Stage, supported by the WBAF Angel Investment Fund, will provide a unique opportunity to 100 selected startups and scaleups to pitch their businesses on 17–18 February. It is important to note that the WBAF Angel Investment Funds is only one of many individual investors and investing institutions that will be present at the GFRS 2020.
The Global Fundraising Stage (GFRS) is an international co-investment platform for investors, startups, scaleups, and high-growth businesses that are raising funds from qualified investors with the ultimate aim of globalising. The GFRS aims to create a high-quality portfolio with some of the world’s most promising startups and scaleups and, at the same time, create opportunities for co-investment and follow-on investments. The GFRS also connects top startups and scaleups with the best angel investors, making it possible for the startups and scaleups to benefit not only from the investment itself but also from the know-how, mentorship, and networks of qualified investors.
Free Investment Readiness Workshop and a Free one-on-one Mentoring Session
These 100 startups will have a free Investment Readiness Workshop from the WBAF Business School. They will also have a free one-on-one mentoring session with a qualified mentor of the World Business Angels Investment Forum.
Exhibition Booths to showcase businesses
WBAF is allocating a special area within the 2020 World Congress of the World Business Angel Investors Forum (WBAF 2020) where 100 selected startups, scaleups, and high-growth businesses will each have an area to showcase their business. The mission is to highlight the world’s top startups and scaleups, which, typically, are funded companies in the process of raising €50K – €3M, with the aim of globalising.
