After about 20 years in the insurance and financial sector Niclas Öberg wanted, to make a contribution of social benefit. He wanted to use his contacts and good relationships with various artists, politicians, business profiles and policy makers at various levels for a good cause in which he feels a personal commitment.
After a few years an idea of a foundation developed and the plans were put into practice.
