EBAF 2014 Announcement

EBAN is most pleased to be co-organizing this first-ever event between Business Angels and Stock Exchanges with the Borsa Istanbul, TBAA – Business Angels Association, and Forbes I Para Conferences.

The participation of stock exchanges and the public trading of shares in start-ups is crucial to the development of the innovation and entrepreneurial ecosystem all throughout the world.

The strategic geographic placement of Istanbul between Europe, Middle East North Africa and Asia reflects EBAN's growth, documented by our recent incubation of MBAN and ABAN in the MENA Region and Africa.

The Forum will bring together the best Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) of Europe, public authorities, angel investors, venture capital funds, executives of Exchanges, and all institutions that work to facilitate entrepreneurs’ access to finance, and table the measures to be taken to allow entrepreneurs to have access to finance from start-up to early exit phase.

The sessions will also outline the actions that especially Exchanges may take to play a more active role in raising finance for entrepreneurs.

On the second day of the Forum, the South East Europe Super Founders Entrepreneurship (SEEC) Demo Day will be held.

Our EBAN, MBAN and ABAN members will all be coming to participate and attend this ground-breaking conference which we hope will result in clear sign-posting and new initiatives for the Venture Finance eco-system at large.
