There will be a fashion show from West Africa and a strong alliance of 7 Arabic countries under the name Arabic Heritage fashion show.

The orators for this forum are seasoned speakers from diverse works and backgrounds. Many are entrepreneurs and leaders from their work companies and organizations. The motivation and inspiration for organizing Global Business Forum came from the need for entrepreneurs and startups in Finland to promote employment and entrepreneurship within the minority communities of immigrants to integrate with society, and also to encourage diversity and inclusion in business, leadership and the workforce.

Women Designed for Success is a non‐governmental organization based in Finland with the aim to empower the community in general especially women through recognition in the areas of business, education, charity giving, sports performance, and entrepreneurship, among other things. WODESS also presents the special edition of their annual hard copy magazine to showcase the achievements of entrepreneurs and encourage them and others by sharing their stories.
