1 / How are fund managers selected?
6 member selection committee comprised of partners from sovereign funds, fund of funds and family offices
2 / What do you define as a Emerging Fund Manager?
We consider any manager who is raising their first or second fund to be an emerging fund manager. We understand there might be slight differences in terms of what means a first or second fund since some managers raise SPVs and side vehicles. If you are raising your first or second main vehicle then you will be considered a EFM. If you have any doubts, please email email@example.com
3 / How does the pitch work?
Each fund manager gets 5 mins to pitch. There will be an app exclusive for the event where the GPs can interact with LPs. There will be a double opt-in system where a GP/LP can request to connect with another GP/LP. Once the request is accepted, the LP/GPs can message each other and connect
4 / Where will the event happen?
The event will be in Singapore. Exact location will be given to the selected GPs and LPs.
