LP Office Hours (now Emerging Manager Office Hours)

LP Office Hours 5 – Fund of Funds

Virtual
June 3, 2021

Venture Forward held its fifth LP Office Hours program (and first virtually) with a focus on fund of funds (LPOH 5), sponsored by Carta.

LPOH 5 provided 25 emerging fund managers from backgrounds underrepresented in VC with an opportunity to have candid conversations with fund of fund limited partners (LPs), experienced general partners (GPs), and industry advisors about fundraising, managing the GP-LP relationship, and managing a VC fund. Applicants who were raising or closed their 1st fund were prioritized for selection.
