FUNDING SUPPORT & INVESTOR MEETINGS
One of the major challenges what emerging start-ups and Ideators face today is the lack of access to a robust and responsive, integrated investment platform. WSE aims to address this concern with the introduction of an investment platform for start-ups at the WSE SERIES 2019 The WSE INVESTMENT PLATFORM is a global connection of angel investors, venture capital firms, investment and family offices all looking to support the next big successful idea in the start-up realm. Upon your registration as a start-up on this platform, your details will be accessed and reviewed by hundreds of investors from across the globe. WSE will use its regional events and the grand finale as the initial platform for conducting face to face meetings for this purpose.
