Excellent business angels should get excellent deals. However, while there are many people calling themselves business angels, not all of them show the same level of professionalism. Startups are looking for smart money. How can they know who to trust? And how can potential co-investors know?
Being a CBA (Certified Business Angel) serves as an internationally recognized signal of quality and seriousness. CBAs will benefit from better deal flow, better negotiating positions, international contacts to equally professional angels and ongoing education services addressing common challenges.
The Certified Business Angel (CBA) is the world’s first independent, international certification of individual business angels (ISO 17024). It is a registered trademark and based on the verification of a candidate’s grasp of the standardized CBA Body of Knowledge (see below).
Candidates who have positively passed a written and an oral exam with one of our independent ISO-certified examination partners will receive the right to hold the CBA. As CBAs, they will be expected to abide by the CBA Code of Ethics. They will also receive membership in the exclusive alumni club.
Details regarding the admission requirements, the process etc. are available on the website of the certification institution.
