World Business Angels Investment Forumannounces Prof. Hykmete N. Bajrami, Kosovo’s Finance Minister, as a High Commissioner for the Grand Assembly

 

H.E. Prof Hykmete N. Bajrami, Kosovo’s Finance Minister, will represent Kosovo as a High Commissioner at the Grand Assembly of the world’s biggest angel investment forum. Prof Bajrami has also served her country as the Minister of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation (2020) and, the  Minister of the Ministry of Trade and Industry (2014 – 2017).

 

The inclusion of Kosovo in WBAF provides a wide range of opportunities for Kosovo’s start-ups, scaleups and high growth businesses and opens the doors for economic development.

 

As a Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Prof Bajrami is well-placed to lead an economic development commission at the World Business Angels Investment Forum. Drawing on her experience as an academician of the Faculty of Economics at the University of Prishtina, she will lecture in the WBAF Business School’s Certificate Programme in International Diplomacy for Entrepreneurship. She will also serve as a board member of the Diplomacy in Action for Entrepreneurs group.

 

Kosovo’s increased involvement in the global action plans of the World Business Angels Investment Forum will open up splendid opportunities for the country. Local Kosovo angel investors, incubation centres, accelerators, private equity funds, co-investment funds, technology parks, corporate ventures and aspiring entrepreneurs will now have more opportunities to connect with global leaders in their particular fields.

 

Prof Bajrami’s leadership at WBAF as President of an Economic Development Commission will provide a broad range of opportunities for start-ups, scaleups and high growth businesses and will open doors for economic development, not only for Kosovo but for other countries in the region as well.

 

As an affiliated partner of the G20 Global Partnerships for Financial Inclusion (GPFI), WBAF supports start-ups, develops entrepreneurial ecosystems, and helps venture capital and companies connect with international companies, fin-techs and other relevant institutions. We are confident about our contribution to the economic development of countries by facilitating connections with entrepreneurial ecosystems. We strongly believe that Kosovo and the South East Europe region in general will benefit from the efforts of Minister Bajrami to empower the start-up economy of the country through entrepreneurship, innovation and angel investment.
