BPN - Business Professionals Network
The BPN Foundation has been founded by Jürg Opprecht,
owner of the Lenkerhof gourmet spa resort in 1999.
BPN is supporting artisans and skilled tradesmen in selected countries with the goal of helping them to become small business owners and thus increasing the number of available employment opportunities for all.
BPN employs a program which offers coaching, education, loans under fair conditions, and a local business owners association to help achieve their goals. By following the philosophy of helping others to help themselves, thousands of new jobs are created.
BPN has been supporting entrepreneurs in Kyrgyzstan, Nicaragua, Rwanda and Mongolia, and has begun preparations to support entrepreneurs in Georgia as well.
The Lenkerhof gourmet spa resort supports Foundation BPN.
On TV channel 2 a documentary informs about BPN‘s activities in Rwanda.
