Investor Relations for Fund Managers

Investor relations and fundraising strategy targeting  Limited Partners.  Leveraging direct networking, PR social media and events to acquire new Limited Partners aligned with the fund thesis.

SIC Pricing Model

We engage with early and late stage companies by taking a combination of equity, success fee (on GTM or Partnership deals) and in all cases a modest monthly retainer.  In the case of large fundraising engagements, we partner with select Broker-Dealers in our network.

We engage with Venture Funds by taking a percentage of the carry.
