Launch of WBAF Global Partner Toolkit

  • News

To better help our members reach their full potential with our partnerships, JCI is launching their brand new World Business Angels Investment Forum (WBAF) toolkit! With this interactive toolkit, JCI members can solidify themselves as global leaders through networking and the spirit of collaboration by having full access to useful information such as a WBAF FAQ, introduction video, and “Opportunities in WBAF” section. 

“With this toolkit, there are so many unique opportunities for JCI members to learn about such as free webinars through the WBAF Business School or the WBAF Startup Center,” said Diana Sussman Tockstein, Senior Manager for Global Partnerships. “It is important to us at JCI that our members, our enterprising young leaders, not only have as many opportunities as possible but are actively aware and informed about them as well.”

So what are the long-term benefits of this toolkit? By providing members with tools and resources needed to foster partnerships with our global partners, there will be an array of benefits including: 

Boosting JCI’s brand awareness and brand visibility

Enabling membership growth and retention and 

Increasing financial sustainability. 

We encourage JCI organizations to work with WBAF on projects that are in line with our shared values, especially on financial and digital inclusion, and female leadership. Not only that, but JCI members can collaborate on business and entrepreneurship skills development projects with WBAF, a topic that aligns perfectly with the second pillar of JCI RISE and our Creative Young Entrepreneur Program.

If you’d like to share this exciting news with your region or country, you can reference the global press release, or contact local WBAF representatives to set up introductory meetings. Although currently only in English, make sure to check back at the end of April when the WBAF toolkit will be translated in Spanish, French, and Japanese. Peruse the toolkit on our Trello Board for more information.
