The World Business Angels Investment Forum 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. WBAF holds that, with the participation of individuals and institutions from multiple sectors and from all parts of society, real progress can be achieved.
One way WBAF does this is through its High Commissioners, Commissioners, and Senators. Becoming a WBAF High Commissioner, Commissioner, or Senator involves embracing activities that are designed to serve the global community and WBAF members. By combining regular, small contributions from many dynamic High Commissioners, Commissioners, and Senators around the world, we all benefit from shared learning, better networks and increased exposure.
