In the realm of business networking, Bengaluru-based entrepreneur Ikram Ahmed Khan is gearing up to introduce a groundbreaking platform—the International Forum for Trade and Business (IfTab). With a slated soft launch in December, IfTab aims to redefine the way professionals, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders connect on a global scale.
A serial entrepreneur driven by a passion for innovation, Khan embarked on his business journey in 2004. With nearly two decades of experience and a proven track record in various ventures, he is the force behind Spacewell Ventures Pvt Ltd, where cutting-edge solutions in personalizations and customizations are the norm. Khan is also the founder of IKRAMAAC Properties, a consultancy committed to transforming real estate aspirations into reality. His venture into the art world led to the creation of Callithon.com, a platform dedicated to the promotion of calligraphy.
Khan’s impact extends far beyond the realm of business. As a devoted Rotarian and Past President of the Rotary Club of Bangalore Koramangala, he has been recognized for his outstanding contributions to community service. He is also the founder of the Spacewell Foundation, an organization with a focus on local community development and well-being.
Set to soft launch in December, IfTab is poised to be a dynamic and innovative international forum for trade and business. Khan envisions it as a platform that brings together professionals, entrepreneurs, and industry leaders, fostering valuable connections and collaborations worldwide.
IfTab will operate on an invitation-only basis, a departure from traditional networking platforms. Khan emphasizes communication through social media platforms like LinkedIn, steering clear of WhatsApp groups. The forum will offer training sessions led by industry professionals, business/investors meetups, and extensive networking opportunities, targeting markets from B2C/D2C to B2B on both local and global fronts.
IfTab sets itself apart with its invitation-only membership, inter-state seminars, and exhibitions. It promises skill development workshops and emphasizes privacy by avoiding WhatsApp groups. Beyond networking, IfTab aims to provide resources for professional development, collaborative projects, mentorship programs, leadership opportunities, international exposure, and media/public relations support.
When asked about the motivation behind IfTab, Khan stated, “I wanted to create a platform where people not just network with people, but also get to learn something.” With this vision in mind, IfTab is positioned to be more than just a networking hub—it’s an ecosystem where innovation meets collaboration, and professionals can learn, grow, and connect globally.
As the soft launch date approaches in December, the business community eagerly awaits the unveiling of IfTab. With Khan’s track record of turning ideas into successful ventures, IfTab is poised to be a game-changer in the world of global business networking.
