fPlaza training programmes

The fPlaza (femalePlaza) training programmes are built to strengthen the high-growth entrepreneurship, business skills and career opportunities of women. The programmes are ideal for entrepreneurs or for women working in management and specialist roles who wish to boost growth and internationality. Our objective is to create favourable conditions for new products and services, as well as to discover new markets and create networks locally, nationally, and internationally.

fPlaza consists of four training programmes focusing on entrepreneurship and business management. In fPlaza, we organise training, develop methods and learning materials that support leadership and entrepreneurship. We also organise expert and trainer exchange, seminars, and international study trips. Choose the training programme that serves your needs best!
