KFF24's tagline "Let's Gather!" means more than just a conference. It's a call to action and an opportunity to join a worldwide movement that aims to drive positive change. We plan to create new paths, share new stories, and challenge the limits of what we believe is possible.

"Why are we gathering in Oslo?" you might ask. Well, Oslo is a stunning city in a country renowned for its high levels of trust, supportive welfare systems, and breathtaking natural beauty, including forests, fjords, and saunas. The city is ideally situated between blue and green, offering a unique blend of urban and natural landscapes to explore!

Our Story

Since 2017, the KFF organization has been at the forefront of bringing together a diverse and expanding global network of impact investors, change-makers, and value-driven entrepreneurs.

Katapult Future Fest is a non-profit movement that strives to make a positive impact on society by building a strong ecosystem. KFF has been working tirelessly over the years to develop and host a robust, purpose-driven community that prioritizes action and investment.

At our events, we aim to uplift voices that are often marginalized, initiate discussions about bold and innovative concepts, and inspire constructive transformation. This is our seventh year, and we welcome you to join us in a purpose that goes beyond personal aspirations.

Fostering Collaboration & Change

In a world where disconnection and polarization are rampant, Katapult Future Fest firmly believes in the power of physical interactions to foster belonging, collaboration, and inclusion.

We recognize the significant impact of communities where shared values, meanings, and new narratives for better futures can be created. KFF is a space to practice acceptance, build trust, plan, and achieve things together. That's why we gather.

Our Boutique Approach

Katapult Future Fest is all about vibrancy and participation, creating an immersive environment that encourages engagement, spontaneity, and action. This dynamic approach transcends conventional meetings, encouraging ingenuity and teamwork.

The selection of participants is a crucial factor in shaping the success of the gathering. Your diverse perspectives, backgrounds, and expertise contribute to a rich collective experience, challenging assumptions, and broadening discussions.

Global Ecosystem

The Katapult Future Fest ecosystem is a group of highly influential individuals, including impact investors, tech entrepreneurs, and business leaders, who are unequivocally dedicated to making a positive impact.

Over the years, KFF has brought together a diverse group of individuals, featuring hundreds of voices and contributors from more than 40 nationalities. The community is fully committed to delivering exceptional results and has a record of accomplishment of achieving outstanding outcomes.

Matchmaking

This event is where startups and investors can spend quality time together over multiple days, creating lasting relationships beyond the usual startup events. It's not just about pitching your ideas, but also about having authentic interactions and meaningful conversations.

We aim to bring together capital, talent, companies, and startups to accelerate the shift toward a more sustainable world by showcasing profitable businesses with a positive impact.

The Dialogue

Have you ever wondered how to tackle challenging and uncomfortable topics? Complex discussions can lead to excellent outcomes and transformative ideas and solutions. Think of it like an oyster that needs grit to form a pearl.

Let's dive into the cool stuff like future literacy, conscious capital, systems change, epic narratives, and technology for good. You know what they say – good communication avoids conflicts, while bad communication leads to them. So, let's create a chill and safe space where we can listen to each other, ask questions, talk about tricky subjects, and spread good vibes.

Katapult Adventures

Are you excited for the upcoming Katapult Future Fest, KFF24? We have some amazing opportunities for you as an attendee to make the most of your week in Norway. Together with a selection of travel and experience hosts, we'll be co-creating a week full of unforgettable memories in Norway.

Festival Overview

Ready to challenge yourself, learn by doing and actively engage with others? Our interactive sessions, including speculative design workshops, explore complex societal structures. We foster creativity, teamwork, and community, encouraging innovative thinking, partnerships, and growth.

Investor Day - May 29 at Sentralen

Øvre Slottsgate 3, 0157 Oslo

Investor Day is a special event designed exclusively for investors. This year's event is divided into three main categories: Private Wealth, Venture Capital, and Foundations. This is to cater to different needs for connecting discussions and collaborations and to tailor the design of the dialogue to best facilitate innovative themes and topics. The morning and late afternoon sessions will be more high-level and will consist of plenary sessions before the deep dives.

After Investor Day, the KFF24 festival days kick off in the evening to bring together the KFF Community. The kickoff is open to all.

Festival Day 1 - May 30 at 3KT

Dokkveien 3, 0250 Oslo

Let's dive straight into the post-scarcity society and start exploring what-if questions. We'll examine how resilience and adaptability are essential assets in this context and how the paradigm may shift from ownership to stewardship. We'll also adapt the concept of mental sustainability in an era of constant change and uncertainty.

Get ready to explore various exciting sub-themes and activities such as Systems Change, Future Literacy, Impact Tech Startups, Reimagining Capitalism, Ethics and AI, Quantum Computing, Empathy Labs, Art walks, and more. Finally, we'll wrap up our day by attending our well-known Community Dinners.

Festival Day 2 - May 31 at 3KT

Dokkveien 3, 0250 Oslo

The final day of KFF24 kicks off in collaboration with Morning Beat, and promises and unforgettable ending to your week at KFF. We gather once more, celebrate our achievements, and reflect on our experiences together. You'll have a unique opportunity to reminisce and relish the moments shared during the conference.

Make sure to stay in Oslo for the Friday evening, and join us for a grand celebration on the last day. We invite all of you to an After-Party at 3KT, followed by an After-After Party wrapping up Katapult Future Fest 2024!
