Who qualifies as an emerging manager?
If you are a general partner at a venture capital firm with total committed capital across all funds of $200M or less, or are a growth-stage fund on your first two funds, you qualify and your application will be reviewed by the committee.
How much does it cost to participate?
GP ticket prices have not yet been determined. Due to space limitations, GPs are limited to one investing partner per company. LP tickets are complimentary.
Do real investment opportunities emerge from RAISE?
Absolutely! GPs and LPs alike share countless success stories of forging lasting connections at RAISE. In fact, over 100 of the LPs who attended RAISE in the last 2 years have made at least one investment as a result of the event.
