Emerging Manager Showcase

ILPA Summit – Emerging Manager Showcase | Save the Date: November 8-10, 2022

This highly selective event mirrors our proven, efficient ILPA Summit process with a carefully curated group of Emerging Managers. With much success we hosted the event virtually in 2021, delivering unprecedented value to limited and general partners from around the world. We are excited to plan for a return to an in-person event next November 8-10 at the InterContinental Barclay New York and to greet old friends and new!

EM Showcase Application

Applications are now being accepted for the 2022 event.

Please note: As ILPA is an association for investors in private equity, GPs applying should note that funds that are very niche focused or focused on real assets, infrastructure and real estate are most likely not a fit for the ILPA Summit. General Partner attendees include Buyout, Growth, Distressed, Mezzanine, Secondary, Venture Capital, and select specialty funds from around the world.

How do Emerging Managers attend?

To be considered for the showcase, all potential managers must submit an application form.  Managers are then reviewed and qualified during an application process by a committee of LPs active and interested in this space, to ensure a diverse and broad group of managers.

Please submit an application using the form on this page.
