Global Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) 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 a Global Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Committee, an international gathering of founders, leaders, and mentors for learning, connecting and innovating. It is the first WBAF committee dedicated to innovators and scientists, and its focus is on propelling  start-ups, scaleups, SMEs and high-growth businesses. This group includes global luminaries from the realms of business, art, politics, and philanthropy to shape and shake the future of the universal entrepreneurship ecosystem through global partnerships.

With advancements in business transformation, machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and more, there has never been a better or more challenging time for leaders of the global innovation and technology ecosystem. The Global Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Committee of the World Business Angels Investment Forum gathers some of the world’s most influential of these leaders to explore today’s biggest technological challenges, foster deep collaboration, and generate new ideas.

Mission Statement
The Global Science, Technology and Innovation (STI) Committee of the World Business Angels Investment Forum is committed to connecting innovators with smart finance, creating a better environment for innovation, helping inventors commercialize their inventions, fostering the kind of creative thinking that leads to innovation by open learning and skill development, and accelerating technology transfer around the world.
