How To Raise A Debut PE Fund

A webinar and online LP networking event to help you raise your first private equity fund

Thursday, November 30, 2023, 1pm - 3pm | Online

Which LPs have an affinity for first-time funds? What kind of track record do you need to woo them? How do you break through the noise? Should you take an anchor investment? Get the answers to these and many more questions on Thursday, November 30, from 1PM ET to 3PM ET during a special online workshop and LP discussion. It's hosted by the leaders in online PE education—Private Equity Professional, Private Equity Career News and AlphaWeek.

Webinar Content

We've assembled an all-star cast of speakers—including seven investors in first-time funds, one placement agent and one fund attorney who represents start-up firms. Along with answering your questions, they'll cover the following topics:

* How to identify early-fund investors that can give your fund crucial momentum;

* Top do's and don'ts of road show meetings and presentation decks;

* Tactics to manage the all-important follow-up conversations with potential investors—and how to know if they're interested;

* Advice on how much seed money you'll need to sustain a successful fund-raise;

* How to make sure your back office passes muster with institutional investors;

* Partnership terms to offer to get investors bellying up to the first-close bar—and terms to never compromise on.
