Event Details

RAISE provides a platform connecting Limited Partners with the next generation of venture capitalists. Our team carefully curates the RAISE attendee list every year, bringing you the highest quality experience possible. Our goal is to foster a personalized, concise, rich experience leading to new partnerships and deals. Here’s how it works.

LIMITED PARTNERS

Who Should Participate?

Institutional investors, family offices, endowments, or accredited HNW individuals interested in investing in emerging venture funds.

Watch 30 Emerging Managers Pitch:

This year, we go virtual and make it easy for you to leverage the best emerging fund community assembled since RAISE began 5 years ago. Starting September 29 we will Webcast 10 emerging manager presentations a day, each 5 minutes in length, selected from a curated application pool of over 130 funds.

130+ Fund Profiles Online:

Registered Limited Partners log into the RAISE website to immediately access the profiles of all participating emerging venture capital funds. Review profiles and performance data, download and review fundraising decks, and connect with the funds you like.

1:1 Concierge Meetings:

Anytime after you register, while reviewing a manager profile, simply click Request Virtual Meeting and our concierge services will schedule a private web meeting between you and the fund manager.

Follow-up:

After the event until the end of the year, all emerging manager profiles, contact information, fundraising decks, performance data, and concierge meeting services will be available to registered LPs on the RAISE website.

Additional Sessions:

Many additional sessions are in the planning stages and will be announced soon.

GENERAL PARTNERS

Who Should Participate?

If you are a General Partner at a venture capital firm with AUM of $150M or less, or have a growth stage fund with two funds regardless of AUM, RAISE is for you.

Pitch to Limited Partners:

This year we will host 30 emerging manager presentations. Each selected manager presents their fund to up to 200 participating Limited Partners during one of the three presentation sessions starting September 29.

The Video Pitch:

The video pitch is now an essential tool for the venture fundraising data room. RAISE provides all 30 selected presenters guidance and a professional AV staff to produce your 5 minute pitch. It will Webcast in September and you get a copy to use in your own data room. Even those not selected to pitch this year can upload their own pitch video to the website for viewing by RAISE Limited Partners.

Learn from your Peers:

All RAISE attendees can join and watch the 30 funds pitch in September.

Privately Market Your Fund:

All participating General Partners - whether presenting or not - are included in the RAISE Portal. Limited Partners search for, review, sort, connect with, and request additional information from attending General Partners using this portal. Once published your profile remains live until the end of the year.

1:1 Concierge Meetings:

The RAISE staff provides Limited Partners a concierge service to schedule private virtual meetings with any published emerging manager.

How do I Register?

First, you must be invited. If you do not have an invitation, click here to request one. Those invited will receive an email with instructions on how to register. Cost of registration is $250 per venture company, and entitles up to four partners to attend the September Webcasts.

RAISE PRESENTATION SELECTION COMMITTEE

We are pleased to provide you a platform to reach an estimated 200 Limited Partners at RAISE5. We expect more applications to present than we have presentation slots. As a result, we have formed a committee of experienced venture capital fund investors to select which funds will present.
