Mehmet Şimşek : The WBAF Ministerial Roundtable brought together 4 ministers and 4 global leaders
24.04.2019

Investing globally provides huge opportunities, but before investing, one needs extensive knowledge about the ecosystem. The post-digital revolution world will be informed by decisions made today, and the leaders of global ecosystems are authorized to drive this revolution on behalf of their community.

With this in mind, as an affiliated partner of the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI), the World Business Angels Investment Forum hosted a roundtable at the World Business Angels Investment Forum 2019 as a global convergence of global leaders of early and post-early stage equity and capital markets to discuss in detail the G20’s agenda to increase financial inclusion in the world.

This WBAF Ministerial Roundtable of the World Business Angels Investment Forum 2019 included government ministers from various countries, angel investors, policymakers, and representatives of innovation and science parks, chambers of commerce and industry, and government investment promotion agencies. The discussants explored ways to develop an international dialogue between public and private institutions that will empower early and post-early stage equity markets in response to the worldwide digital transformation.

The Roundtable was moderated by H.E. Mehmet Simsek, Former Deputy Prime Minister of the Republic of Turkey.

Discussants were H.E. Alhaji Mohammed Ibrahim Awal, Business Development Minister, Republic of Ghana; H.E. Besim Beqaj, Minister of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Republic of Kosovo; H.E. Zoran Sapuric, Minister in charge of Regulations, Republic of Macedonia; Baybars Altuntas, Chairman, World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF); Peter Cowley, President, the European Trade Association of Business Angels (EBAN); Matthew Gamser, CEO of the SME Finance Forum – IFC, World Bank Group; Dr Hashim S. Hussein, Head of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO); and Abdul Malek Al Jabaar, President of the Middle East Trade Association for Business Angels (MBAN).

The WBAF Ministerial Roundtable brought together government ministers from various countries, angel investors, policymakers, and representatives of innovation and science parks, chambers of commerce and industry, and government investment promotion agencies. The discussants, prominent global leaders of the world’s investment value chain, attempted to explain how they plan to encourage collaboration between the ecosystems they lead. They also explored ways to develop an international dialogue between public and private institutes that would empower early and post-early stage equity markets in response to the worldwide digital transformation.
