LP Office Hours (now Emerging Manager Office Hours)

LP Office Hours 6 – Foundations & Endowments

Virtual
November 16, 2021

Venture Forward held its sixth LP Office Hours program (LPOH 6) virtually with a focus on foundations and endowments, sponsored by SVB.

LPOH 6 provided 25 emerging fund managers from backgrounds underrepresented in VC with an opportunity to have candid conversations with limited partners (LPs) at foundations and endowments, experienced general partners (GPs), and industry advisors about fundraising, managing the GP-LP relationship, and managing a VC fund. Applicants who were raising their first or second fund were prioritized for selection.
