Jedna od misija i vizija BHFF-a je međusobno povezivanje članova naše dijaspore, te saradnja sa mladima iz BiH. To vidimo kao neizostavan korak ka iskorištenju potencijala koje BiH ima i ekonomskom razvoju naše države. Partnera u ovoj misiji smo pronašli u mladoj, snažnoj i prosperitetnoj platformi "NEBO" u Nizozemskoj. Misiju, viziju, te rad naše Fondacije na NEBO biznis forumu u Nizozemskoj predstavili su Zvonimira Jakić i Haris Selmanović.
