Vienna – BH Professionals Networking & Business Forum
Business networking forum connecting professionals, entrepreneurs, companies, students & young professionals from Bosnia and Herzegovina with those of Vienna and Austria.
We believe that with the 1.5 million or more in the diaspora, of which a large proportion is highly qualified, influential and experienced, it can be a game-changer for Bosnia & Herzegovina. Furthermore, the extensive networks of our diaspora ensure that no corner of our planet can’t be reached and influenced. The goal of the Bosnia & Herzegovina Professionals Networking and Business Forum is to bring together companies, professionals as well as students from Bosnia & Herzegovina under the same roof as equivalent from the diaspora from the Vienna and Austria.
The Bosnia & Herzegovina Futures Foundation’s goal is to empower youth in our homeland through access to quality education, technology, and global leadership development. In order to achieve our ambitious goals, we recognize the importance of professional networking and strengthening the connections between the different stakeholders.
You will have the opportunity to meet some of our students, partner companies and other professionals who all have one thing in common: Bosnia & Herzegovina.
