ILPA Summit Emerging Manager Showcase


This highly selective event mirrors our proven, efficient ILPA Summit process with a carefully curated group of Emerging Managers. We are thrilled to be back in 2024 at the InterContinental Barclay New York on November 12-14 to greet old friends and new!

An Unparalleled Experience for Up-and-Coming Managers​

  • Exclusive access to the world’s most powerful LPs
  • 1×1 scheduled meeting time slots with face-to-face meetings in addition to plenty of ad-hoc networking
  • The ILPA uses a sophisticated matching tool to generate meetings based on mutual interest that will create a personalized meeting itinerary
  • All LP attendees are high-quality, accredited institutional investors
  • Compelling content and multiple opportunities to engage with fellow PE professionals over coffee and cocktails
  • 80% of participating GPs participating in the November Summit made anywhere from 4-8 new relationships while the remaining 20% can attribute 9+ new relationships to this year’s Summit
  • Long-time Summit participants attribute multiple commitments and re-ups based on their participation at the Summit


Ideal Applicants are:

  • Raising a first or second fund (first institutional fund or small spinout of existing manager) but all candidates will be considered.
  • Focusing on any sector, strategy & geography with the exception of infrastructure, real assets or real estate
  • Seeking a minimum target fund size of $100 million

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.

Application for 2024 is now closed. Application for 2025 will open February 15 – May 15, 2025.

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 here.
