Best of All Worlds
The social network Best Of All Worlds aims to be the ultimate discovery and matching platform for people, products and services available online. BOAW enables its members to navigate and leverage the relevant collective intelligence of the trusted few, rather than the “wisdom of the crowd”. Best of all Worlds is founded by Erik Wachtmeister and Louise Wachtmeister, both pioneers in social media as founders of ASMALLWORLD, an exclusive, invitation-only social media network community.
Athabasca Resources Limited
Listing on the AIM market in London in September this year, the British energy and resource company Athabasca Resources Limited (“ARL”). ARL has entered into agreements to acquire a 50% farm-in interest (“the Farm In”) with Nordic Petroleum AS (“Nordic”) in four Alberta Crown Leases covering 7,936 hectares in the Athabasca Oil Sands in Alberta, Canada (“the Chard Leases”). ARL is negotiating an exclusive license/joint venture with Oil Recovery Services Limited, (”ORS”) which owns technology and know how that may enable oil recovery (at significantly reduced cost) from the oil sands without the need for steam injection using organic enzymes which are environmentally neutral and that do not leave a carbon footprint. ORS’s technology is already in use in the Bahamas with a major international oil company where it is being deployed in oil remediation and waste recovery.
Fantrac Global Limited

In addition to its investment activities, Viral Angels regularly organizes seminars, lectures and activities in various forms for its members. Each month there are a number of events around European cities.
“Viral Angels has already proven to be a success story, not only in Sweden but all across Europe and other countries. We predict reaching 30,000 members before the end of 2014” says Anthony Norman.
