GBAN was launched at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Milan during the Global Angel Summit in March, 2015. While membership is free, it requires angel organizations to fill out an application as either a national member (one representative per country), or a general member (other organizations involved in developing the angel movement). There are no categories for service providers, academic institutions or SME members as GBAN serves the angel investor movement alone. GBAN will connect with other constituencies through GEN.
Principles of GBAN
- GBAN promotes knowledge sharing and collaboration for and with other key actors in local and global entrepreneurial ecosystems. GBAN seeks to:
- Connect business angels with other actors in entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world;
- Increase public awareness regarding the role of business angels within entrepreneurial ecosystems including advancing the concerns of existing angels, welcoming new investors and increasing the overall ability of new firms to gain access to angel investors worldwide; and
- Develop angel investor groups in burgeoning entrepreneurial ecosystems and help foster more communication between angel organizations around the world.
