The BVCA annual First Time Fundraising Workshop is an important initiative within our calendar to help foster and support the future leaders of our industry.
This workshop is designed for GPs raising a maiden fund and not for individuals within firms which have raised consecutive funds.
Given changes in the industry and its continuing evolution, many teams are entering unknown territory. Whether you've spun out a captive fund that is now seeking third-party investors or you're setting up your own operation, this valuable and timely workshop will help you:- Learn from the experience of other first time fundraisers- Hear what LPs are looking for
- Ensure you are fully informed on matters relating to:
The fundraising process
