The University of Algarve hosts the conference “Turning around the crisis, with the Business Angels” which takes place on the 8th, at 18 pm, at the Faculty of Economics, as part of the V National Week of Business Angels.

This initiative of the National Federation of Associations of Business Angels (FNABA) will take place on November 7th and 11th, in several cities across the country, with the objective of bringing the public and, in particular, the entrepreneurs of the Business Angels of each region.

This year's theme “Turning around the crisis, with the Business Angels” intends to reinforce the role of Business Angels in the current economic situation of the country, and its importance in the creation and expansion of high potential companies.

AV National Week of Business Angels is sponsored by IAPMEI and the Office of the Manager of the Compete Program, entities that over the years, in close partnership with FNABA, have been expressing their commitment to promoting the activity of Business Angels in Portugal.

For Francisco Banha, president of FNABA, “the financing of new business initiatives is critical for more companies to be created and for more qualified jobs to be generated in innovative sectors of the economy. The Business Angels Community, gathered within FNABA, now has at its disposal a Co-Investment Fund, in the amount of 42 million euros, of which 28 million euros come from the COMPETE Program and 1,5 million from Caixa Capital , which entrepreneurs can consider when launching or developing their projects with high potential for growth and valorization”.

With this initiative, FNABA, through its Business Angels networks, dynamizes private capital for business investment, especially those created by young entrepreneurs.
