PFAN Investment Forums
Investment Forums are our flagship events, where we showcase the best investment-ready projects in each region to investors and financiers.
Annual Forums are held in the following regions:
- East Africa
- Southern Africa
- West Africa
- Global – in Vienna, Austria or another location in Europe or North America
Additional Forums may be held in other locations connected to specific regional calls for proposals.
Each Investment Forum features a business plan competition. The eight to ten selected project developers deliver a project pitch to an audience of up to 100 investors and other sector stakeholders. The pitches are judged by an independent panel of experts, and the project with the best pitch and business plan wins the PFAN Climate and Clean Energy Financing Award.
All projects participating in Investment Forums have the opportunity to progress to the Investment Facilitation stage. Participation in an Investment Forum has been shown to improve the chances of attracting investment.
In addition to the regional Investment Forums, PFAN organises a global Investment Forum, which is used to showcase the very best PFAN projects from the PFAN pipeline to international investors, donors, development finance institutions, PFAN Partners and other stakeholders. The Global Forum is held in Vienna, Austria, or in another location in Europe or Northern America that is convenient for international investors.
