IBAN's members are territorial BAN’s, investors clubs, business angels and professionals in matching investors (formal and informal) with entrepreneurs, authorities and institutions. Also, individual business angels are engaged in IBAN activities. There are examples of public sector, private sector and “not profit” organisations’.

In addition, IBAN has links with the Italian Venture Capital Association (AIFI) and local and national associations of entrepreneurs; together with AIFI, IBAN fills an important gap in the Italian community of risk capital. IBAN also promotes and incentivizes women to become business angels; since 2017 IBAN is partner of EC/BAE WA4E project.
IBAN commitment to the ESIL project is to continue to collaborate with all these stakeholders, to contribute to a broader network, to promote skills to create new BAs and to improve the conditions of existing ones, supporting more startups to grow and scale up.
