  • What is BBA?
    Our community is made up of women from diverse backgrounds and industries. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment where women can network, collaborate, and learn from one another while navigating the unique challenges and opportunities of living abroad. As we continue to grow, we aspire to inspire and uplift women across different cities, enabling them to thrive and make their mark on the global business stage.
  • How did BBA start?
    Business Babes Abroad - Hamburg (BBA) was originally created as a group for women in Marketing. What started out as a new Facebook group in 2018 quickly showed that Hamburg-based women professionals were missing something. As the group grew, it became clear that this could serve a purpose for womxn in other fields, so it was opened to all career-oriented women and LGBTQ+ in Hamburg & beyond.
  • What can I expect from BBA?
    Real talk about the struggles of living abroad, genuine networking & friendship, we all want to see everyone grow and succeed, support that feels like your family away from home
