LP Office Hours (LPOH) are half-day events that connect emerging managers from historically underrepresented groups with Limited Partners (LPs), experienced General Partners (GPs), and each other. The last LPOH highlighted Fund of Fund LPs, and took place virtually on June 3, 2021
Each LPOH event begins with an educational component, and then breaks out into several rounds of “office hours” – curated small-group and 1:1 conversations between the emerging managers and the experienced GPs and LPs. The event wraps up with informal networking over food and drink.
The goal of LPOH is to foster open and collaborative dialogue, and to provide a safe space for historically underrepresented emerging managers to seek guidance and advice from leaders in the field. Through intimate conversations with LPs and experienced GPs, emerging managers get to learn about the nuances of fundraising, GP-LP relationship management, and other guidance for success as a VC from the LP’s perspective.
Please note: this is not a pitching event. To ensure that all participants get the opportunity to meaningfully interact with the experienced GPs and LPs, participation is strictly limited to approximately 25 people. These events are specifically intended for emerging managers (no further than raising a second fund), from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in the venture capital industry.
If you are an emerging manager from a historically underrepresented group interested in participating in LPOH, please sign up for our email list to be notified when the next event is announced.
If you’re an experienced GP or LP interested in holding office hours, please email Maryam Haque at email@example.com.
