ABBA - Association of Belarusian Business Abroad

Our mission is to build a strong Belarusian business diaspora abroad and create a global network of Belarusian businesses that will be ready to come back and/or invest in future democratic Belarus.
ABBA goals
  • Unite
    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.
  • Develop
    Belarusian businesses need to improve their business skills, so they can bring back to democratic Belarus better management and business practices.
