WBAF appoints 10 High Commissioners
The entrepreneurial ecosystems of 10 more countries are now more connected with each other and the rest of the world, with the appointment of High Commissioners for Bangladesh, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Palestine, Singapore, Slovenia and Spain.
The World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF) interacts with leaders in all areas of society — first and foremost in business and political spheres — to help assess needs and establish goals, bearing in mind that the public interest is of paramount importance. WBAF engages with a wide range of institutions — public and private, local and international, commercial and academic — to help shape the global agenda.
One way WBAF does this is through its Commissioners. Becoming a WBAF High Commissioner involves embracing activities that are designed to serve the global community and WBAF members. By combining regular, small contributions from many dynamic WBAF Commissioners around the world, everyone benefits from shared learning, better networks and increased exposure.
