Europe India Corporate Finance Forum is a multi-stakeholder platform that provides thought leadership in key areas of finance and co-creates a body of knowledge to support the objective of internationalisation for businesses in Europe and India.


Finance plays a pivotal role in internationalisation as access to finance, knowledge about financial compliances, subsidies, frameworks, models, regulations, and laws is vital for making informed decisions.

The forum is structured as a multi-stakeholder platform guided by an annual workplan with partners from the financial sector to co-create a Body of Knowledge (BoK). The forum compliments and supports core objectives of EBTC, enabling development cooperation and internationalisation for business-to-business collaborations and joint value propositions.

The below depicts the Strategic framework of the forum:
