The BPN Foundation was founded in 1999 by Jürg Opprecht, the owner of the Lenkerhof Hotel.
It supports artisans, small entrepreneurs and skilled tradesmen in selected countries with individual coaching, business management training and loans. This "help for self-help" enables entrepreneurs to build up their businesses professionally and consequently to maintain and create jobs. With the promotion of entrepreneurship, BPN contributes to an economically meaningful development and opens future perspectives locally for humans.
The Lenkerhof gourmet spa resort actively supports the BPN Foundation.
