WASHINGTON, DC, October 23, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — World Business Angel Investors Week 2021 creates a unique opportunity to showcase fresh and innovative ideas that inspire current and future leaders of the world to take risks on new ideas, collaborate across sectors, and transform world economies through the scaling of entrepreneurship, angel investment, financial inclusion and innovation.
This week-long event is an open platform for connecting, learning, sharing, exhibiting inventions and innovations, and exchanging know-how that promotes entrepreneurship and angel investment ecosystems. World Business Angel Investors Week 2021 is a great platform from which to campaign for solutions to critical issues of early stage equity and capital markets and other worldwide concerns at the United Nations, the European Union, G20 countries, as well as regional and local economies.
Business diplomacy can be instrumental for entrepreneurs and governments in their efforts to create favorable business conditions and seize new opportunities, as well as important in advocating for the financial interests of small businesses that need support for their digital transformation. During this special Week, all stakeholders and participants of the Week will pause to assess their fast-paced journey, to analyze why and how business diplomacy can take a more active role in leveraging angel investment as a must-have financial tool for boosting economies, and to reiterate how entrepreneurial ecosystems can create more jobs, more wealth and more social justice in cooperation with key players in early-stage equity markets.
“Impact investing is playing a central role in attaining the UN SDG 2030 Agenda and was a main focus for our North America Continental event” noted Dr. Ingrid Vasiliu-Feltes, WBAF Senior Senator and USA Country Director, who also served as the Continental Chair for this event. Keynotes were delivered by His Excellency David Piccini, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Parks at Ontario, Mr Robert Levin, CEO of Emerging Star Capital and Chairman of WBAF USA Country Office Board of Directors, as well as Leslie Goldman, Managing Partner at The Artemis Fund.
