Which LPs truly 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?
We've assembled an all-star cast of speakers—including investors in first-time funds, placement agents that represents start-up firms, and a fund attorney that has negotiated terms for dozens of limited partnerships.
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, and whether it's worth trying to raise money outside of the United States;
—Partnership term concessions to make to get investors bellying up to the first-close bar—and terms to never compromise on.
