Through this partnership we aim to collaborate in promoting digital innovation, digital transformation, further develop the entrepreneurial ecosystem and promote economic growth.
The WBAF is an international organisation aiming to ease access to finance for businesses from start up to scale up, with the ultimate goal of generating more jobs and more social justice worldwide. It is committed to collaborating globally to empower world economic development by creating innovative financial instruments for innovators, startups, and SMEs.
Under the auspices of this newly created WBAF USA Country Office, we are planning to organize several events throughout 2021 which will include innovation challenges, excellence award competitions, as well as educational roundtables on topics of interest to our network members.
We are excited to share 3 immediate opportunities available to you:
