ABBA goals

After the events of August 2020 Belarusians felt as one nation and Belarusian diaspora around the globe got united. The next step is to unite not only individuals but also businesses.
Connect
Belarusian businesses abroad need to be connected to share knowledge, help each other out, not feel alone and work on joint initiatives.
Support
Belarusian businesses abroad need help with navigating the local business environment (legal aspects, HR rules, accounting, etc.) and getting access to financing.

Belarusian businesses need to improve their business skills, so they can bring back to democratic Belarus better management and business practices.
