Our 10 YEAR CELEBRATION PROGRAMME is now available online!


Make your accreditation today, since we only have very few seats left!When you have secured your accreditation, you will be able to meet our all-star moderator, Karolina Lidin, who has been moderating the Forum since its beginning in 2007, as well as the major part of our following events, steering us all with steady hands through the delicate process of pitching.

- Having followed the Financing Forum since its inception in 2007, I am impressed with how it has grown, not just in terms of numbers of delegates, but more importantly in terms of quality of projects and urgency of mission. Pooling together to make quality content available on all platforms to children & youth, the most discerning audience of all, is more important than ever. I am proud and happy to facilitate that in any way I can - says Karolina Lidin.
