Ethical Governance, Standards of Excellence and Quality Leadership Committee


WBAF holds that, with the participation of individuals and institutions from multiple sectors and from all parts of society, real progress can be achieved.  WBAF committees comprise the world leaders of the World Business Angels Investment Forum — High Commissioners, Senior Senators, Senators and International Partners who represent diverse regions and industries — who are committed to the idea that interaction between multiple stakeholders can be a positive force in creating change.

Committee members work in close cooperation with each other to help shape regional and global agendas in the global and regional investment markets. Through this cooperation, they all contribute to the global knowledge base and benefit from it as they develop the focus of Forum initiatives.

WBAF convenes an Ethical Governance, Standards of Excellence, and Quality Leadership Committee, an international gathering of thought leaders, policymakers, founders, leaders, and mentors for learning, connecting and innovating. This group includes global luminaries from the realms of business, art, politics, and philanthropy whose mission is to encourage the universal entrepreneurship ecosystem to endorse essential standards for ethical governance, standards of excellence, and quality leadership.
