LP Office Hours (now Emerging Manager Office Hours)

LP Office Hours 8 – Family Offices

Virtual
November 15, 2022

Venture Forward held its eighth LP Office Hours program (LPOH 8) virtually with a focus on family offices in November 2022, sponsored by Cooley.

LPOH 8 provided 24 emerging fund managers from backgrounds underrepresented in VC with an opportunity to have candid conversations with family office 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 their first or second fund were prioritized for selection.
