Cross-border Investor Delegation Programmes (WDEL)
for qualified investors

WIPA organises investor delegations to emerging markets and destinations of the world to create a global communication in order to increase cross-border investments. Delegates of these visits realize that their organizations might have the managerial talent and resources to act where governments are unable or unwilling to do so. These leaders have a sense of being called upon to seek the common good, to make a difference, to make the world a better place for due to them having been there.

    • Getting an overview and idea of the local start-up and innovation ecosystems of the countries visited
    • Developing possible bilateral co-operation’s to develop the local entrepreneurship ecosystem
    • Listening to the pitches of entrepreneurs
    • Investing in the high-growth businesses of entrepreneurs
