  • 428 active individual profiles in the community
  • 127 participants at the launch event on 10 December 2018
  • 10 web-meetings organized and attended by more than 200 different participants
  • 146 blog posts published in the knowledge hub
  • Top themes of interest for the WOA Community : New Technology and Fintech (72%), SCF and Reverse Factoring (65%), International Receivables Finance (54%), Receivables as an Asset Class & Funding (50%), Markets & Regions - Stats & Figures (47%).

The First WOA Community Convention in Antwerp 7-8 October will be a huge success with more than 150 thought leaders of the industry expected to be present. 

After this successful start-up, WOA is now preparing for a next phase in its scale-up. Lots of exciting ideas are being discussed, new value propositions are being prepared and new structures explored: all to be revealed at the Antwerp Convention in October.

On behalf of the entire WOA community : a big thanks for the great support received during this exciting first year!
