World Business Angels Investment Forum 2018: the 'Take Invest' Summit

Helping the Next Generation of Great Companies Move Forward
19-20 February 2018, Istanbul


On 19 - 20 February 2018, angel investors will come together in Istanbul at the annual meeting of the World Business Angels Investment Forum with the goal of creating new ways for start-ups, scale-ups and high-growth businesses to access finance.

At this gathering of angel investors — the biggest angel investment forum in the world — we want to give 50 start-ups, scale-ups and high-growth businesses an opportunity to connect with hundreds of highly qualified angel investors from five continents.

We are therefore allocating a special area within the World Business Angels Investment Forum where 50 start-up or scale-up or high-growth businesses will each have a 4-square-metre area to showcase their business. They will thus have exposure to highly qualified angel investors, family office executives, co-investment fund managers, angel investment group directors, corporate venture executives, accelerator executives, techno park investment directors and venture capitalists.

The mission is to showcase the world’s top start-ups and scale-ups, which, typically, are funded companies in the process of raising €500K – €3M, with the aim of globalising. The WBAF Take Invest Summit 2018 will essentially be a co-investment platform for angel investors, start-ups, scale-ups and high-growth businesses.

If you are an entrepreneur or an institution such as a techno park, incubation centre, co-working centre, or accelerator who wants to promote deals across borders and is looking for additional rounds of funding or new partners for international growth, we encourage you to learn more about how your business can benefit from this unique opportunity.
