The president of Big Ban angels, Victoria Majadas, explained that the main theme of this fifth edition is the approach of “what is the future of private investment, reflecting on how the economic slowdown can influence the sector, both short and in the medium term. All this sharing ideas, experiences, success stories and good practices to make better investments. ”
In addition to giving visibility to the figure of the business angel, as an economic driver of innovation and the business fabric, this congress will deliver the 2019 Big Ban Angels Awards, which in this edition present three new applications.

Before the congress
As before the congress, on the afternoon of November 20 at the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, two other complementary events will be held for the private investment sector, which seek to favor the access of startups to investors and capital markets : the Valencia Investors Day, organized by Big Ban angels in collaboration with the Valencian Association of Startups, which also includes the Investors Day of the pre-market environment, celebrated by the association together with Spanish Bags and Markets (BME). And finally, the Business Angels Night will take place, a cocktail networking dinner to establish business relationships and meet the speakers invited to the congress.
