Next Exclusive Investment Forum: FINTECH2017

20 best startups and high-growths of the world in the financial technologies will seek for raising funds at the next investment event of the World Business Angels Investment Forum on the 13th of February 2017, Istanbul. The best investors of the world will be in the investment rooms where startups and high-growths will be pitching.

There will be two separate investment rooms:

Start up Room:

The first room will host the first-time investment raisers who have not raised any kind of investment yet – except from accelerators. 10 startups will be pitching. Allocated pitching time for each startup is 5 minutes.

Scale up Room:

The second room will host the Series A and Series B investment raisers who were invested by angel investors, syndications or corporate ventures before. 5 high-growths will be pitching. Allocated pitching time for each startup is 7 minutes.


Only the startups and scaleups accepted by the Investment Committee of the World Business Angels Investment Forum will be able to pitch to the investors on the 13th of February in Istanbul. Startups and Scaleups will be responsible for their own accommodation and transportation to the venues in Istanbul where investment rooms are. A complimentary ticket will be presented to the approved pitching team members to the venue which will give them to enjoy the panel discussions with angel investors and networking with them in the coffee breaks. Lunch tickets will be 50% discounted for the members of the pitching teams.Working language is English.
