The G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI), under the Saudi Arabia Presidency, issued a statement reaffirming the G20’s commitment to its Action Plan which outlines its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The World Business Angels Investment Forum is a signatory of the Action Plan.
To reflect its commitment to the Action Plan, the World Congress of Angel Investors WBAF 2022 agenda will focus on financial inclusion, digital transformation and connecting startups with angel investors. The sessions will deal with ways to democratise access to finance from startup to scale-up to exit. LPs, startups, scale-ups, and angel investors will be able to connect at the Global Fundraising Stage GFRS 2022 and at the World Excellence Awards, which salute those who stand out in imagining, discussing, and shaping the future of an entrepreneurial world.
As a global organisation, the World Business Angels Investment Forum brings together key players of the equity market to debate the benefits and challenges for the angel investment community in achieving successful growth for their businesses, and to discuss what more can be done to connect the early-stage market ecosystem.
Given the diverse challenges the world is facing in the twenty-first century, it is important to recognize that entrepreneurship can have a major impact on our future, offering new ways to increase economic opportunities and to foster social justice.

Fostering entrepreneurship that affects both economic and social arenas is a hallmark of the World Business Angels Investment Forum.
