The Money Academy
Gathering financial know-how is one of the keys to success in business. BWFR has created  "The Money Academy", in order to share important financial information that will help every business owner, company manager, senior manager, entrepreneur, start-up & NGO, to better understand how the financial world works and how to approach it in a professional way.
“The Money Academy“ provides you with the frame you need for any financial issue – fundraising, loans, allocating investors, project finance, negotiation of credit lines and more…all of these are essential topics for your business success. The Money Academy is done through fun & practical workshops that aim to provide you with the necessary “tool kit” to cover your financial needs and know-how.


We meet on a monthly basis after work, usually between 18:00-21:00. The workshops are done by expert businesswomen from the financing domain, leading professionals and top managers in local & foreign companies.

The workshops are done within an open atmosphere, in the spirit of sharing ideas and challenging topics. We include in each workshop also a networking session, in accordance with the applicable methodology – read here about our networking methods.


Program workshops:
My business plan
What is a cash flow
Me and my accountant a LOVE story
Financing sources
Eu funds - can I really do it?
Factoring and short-term loans
Meeting with the bank
What are VC and angels
Pitch for an investment - A-Z



"The Money Academy" articles are published every month in "Femeia" magazine and online. They can be read also in English on our website.

METOO and you

In October 2017, the famous actress Alyssa Milano tweeted on her Twitter account.

Doing ski vs. doing business

February 25, 2018

It’s been several years for me to be chased by my beloved friend – urging me to finally go ahead and learn some ski. Why I delayed that? So many excuses…it is always time, the need of planning, the hassle in researching, but above all – fear. Fear that was controlling my thoughts, starting always with -“what if“. Several scenarios are running in my head…what if I fall, what if I’ll get injured, what if I won’t be good? So many “what ifs” that created this delay. This year I’ve finally made my decision – no more what ifs, I am going to try.

Business Models

January 19, 2018

Elena arrived to our meeting with a huge black notebook. Her notebook was so huge and loaded with papers that I could not hold myself from asking – “What’s in the book?” It seems Elena was only waiting for this question to come, so her answer was direct: “In this book, I have millions of thoughts, questions and ideas…it’s all about the new business that I want to start soon. The only problem is that I have so many directions, unsolved loops, I simply don’t know what to choose, what is right and what is wrong…so for now I’m simply writing all in the notebook, hoping that soon I will be able to take some decisions”.

The Money Academy: mall shop or online shop?

October 30, 2017

Am cunoscut-o la un târg de fashion pe Denisa; este unul dintre numeroșii designeri români talentați si membră a comunității de business din care fac parte – BWFR. În jur erau mulți clienți ce admirau și probau haine, dar chipul Denisei îi dezvăluia sentimentele de îngrijorare. Am început să vorbim și mi-a împărtășit gândurile ce o măcinau: „Afacerea mea este în creștere, dar nu am nicio idee despre direcția în care trebuie să conduc lucrurile de acum încolo…“
