Letter from Chair of the World Business Angels Investment Forum 2016


Dear Distinguished Keynote Speakers, Moderators and Panelists,

As Chair of the World Business Angels Investment Forum 2016, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for your valuable contributions to the Forum on 22 and 23 February.

I hope you enjoyed your time in Istanbul and I am certain that your participation contributed greatly to the discussion on access to finance for SMEs and entrepreneurs and on the early-stage investment market ecosystem in general.

I am pleased to let you know that the WBAF board has decided to publish a white paper from this event which will include the takeaway messages from your session. The white paper is planned to be distributed at the EBAN Congress in Portugal in May 2016. It will also be sent to the World Economic Forum and relevant EU entities.
