Invest for the Future provides a support network and best knowledge for female entrepreneurs throughout Southern and Eastern Europe and Eurasia. There are three types of support offered: Learning, Networking and Earning. Women business owners can access our knowledge resources; join a community of support from peers and mentors; and identify financial resources to match the strategic needs of small and medium enterprises in the region.
The IFTF learning resources offer insights from experts who will each prepare a series of learning modules in the form of blog posts and relevant links. The topics to be covered include business planning, legal issues, marketing and communication, industry clusters, trends to watch and much more. We will also be maintaining a clearinghouse of policy reports, research and articles that will keep our members well informed and able to read, watch and listen in a quick click of a link. With knowledge at your fingertips, IFTF offers access to free and fee based lifelong learning.
Invest for the Future seeks photographs by women in the Balkans, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the Caucasus illustrating non-denominational contemporary life for an open-themed, juried exhibition. Finalists will appear on our Pinterest boards for each country, and winners will be profiled in our network and featured in our virtual gallery. The show will be promoted throughout the IFTF social media network. This show is a great opportunity to build your art resume at no cost to yourself, and we encourage local participants from each country (though if you are a female photographer and you aren’t from one of our official countries, you are still eligible). The following countries are included: Ukraine, Turkey, Slovenia, Serbia, Poland, Moldova, Macedonia, Greece, Georgia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus, Belarus, Azerbaijan, Albania, Armenia.
