Elevate Your Fund Management Experience from X to 100 with Top Mentors

An industry-led Knowledge Sharing and Learning Program Designed for New and Emerging Fund Managers

Starting a first-time fund can be equated to opening an asset management start-up. Not to forget, first-time fund managers essentially have two jobs - being an investor and a business owner, which means building relationships with LPs and entrepreneurs, managing employees, etc. Hence, room for making mistakes in the beginning stages can be plenty.

The private financing markets in India have emerged to be a strong wall of support to the homegrown start-up ecosystem. In the current times, as more Limited Partners and Family Offices look to invest in alternatives viz-a-viz public equity, the sector is on road to witness an explosion in venture-backed companies. In continuation of this trend and with AIFs growing at an annual rate of 20% over the past decade in India, the meteoric rise of Micro VCs (active fund size of less than USD 30Mn) and first-time fund managers have been inevitable.
