Excellence Awards & VIP Gala Dinner
The World Business Angels Investment Forum Excellence Awards—presented at WBAF2016— recognised notable activities in various fields and salute outstanding contributors to entrepreneurship, SMEs and angel investment ecosystems.
Given the diverse challenges the world faces in the twenty-first century, it is important to recognise that entrepreneurship can have a major impact on our future, offering new ways to increase economic opportunities and to foster social justice.
From business angels to policymakers, and from academics to corporate ventures and SMEs, the awards saluted those who stand out in imagining, discussing, and shaping the future of an entrepreneurial world.
By visiting the ITU Technopark— the biggest technopark of South East Europe, Forum delegates found an excellent opportunity to explore Turkey’s approach to innovation and to gain insights into the local innovation culture. This visit created networking opportunities for mutually beneficial collaboration.
