LP Office Hours

LP Office Hours 1 – Palo Alto

WSGR Office
Palo Alto, CA
July 17, 2018

Venture Forward’s first LP Office Hours (LPOH 1) was held in the summer of 2018 in Palo Alto in partnership with NVCA, Greenspring Associates, and All Raise. The program was founded on the belief that education and powerful relationships can change the ratio of investment partners in VC.

The inaugural LPOH 1 provided 32 emerging fund managers from backgrounds underrepresented in VC with an opportunity to have candid conversations around how limited partners (LPs) and general partners (GPs) can build stronger relationships.
