Venture Forward’s tenth LP Office Hours program (LPOH 10) will focus on family office LPs. The program will be held virtually in November 2023, sponsored by Cooley, GV, and SVB.

25 emerging fund managers (EMs) from backgrounds underrepresented in VC will be selected attend and participate in candid conversations with family office limited partners (LPs), experienced general partners (GPs), and industry advisors about fundraising, navigating the GP-LP relationship, and managing a VC fund.

Applicants who have raised three or fewer funds with a fund size less than $100 million will be prioritized for selection. EMs who have not previously participated in a LPOH program will also be prioritized.

The deadline for EMs to apply to LPOH 10 was October 6.
