Beyond financial assistance, we work with you as aligned active partners
We will help you raise your next fund
We are practical and hands-on, working with you to: create your fundraising go-to-market plan; produce marketing materials; develop a list of target LPs; practice and refine your pitch and provide you with introductions to LPs we know.
Our partners have successfully raised billions of dollars for a variety of different managers and from a variety of different LPs.
Because our partners have also worked as LPs, we can get you through the door, help you highlight the attractions of your fund and carefully frame the things that may concern them.
LPs are looking for impact, but they fear impact-washing/green-washing. We will work with you on your impact proposition, from thinking about your impact targets to measuring them, through all stages of the deal cycle from deal origination to exit.
How we partner with you
We are an agile firm and we value your time. We will work hard to get you the resources you need to grow.
Unlike consultants, we structure our investment in you to ensure that we are aligned to your success. If you do well, we do well.
