The GP Value Creation course is designed for the limited partner looking for an in-depth understanding of how managers add value to portfolio companies. Participants will learn from GP firms that specialize in buy-out, consumer markets and venture capital about how they create value.

This live, faculty-led program combines lecture-based learning with interactive networking and group work elements, designed uniquely for LPs by LPs.


This program is part of the ILPA Institute’s Intensive series of courses, which means this program is designed for the limited partner with more than three years of experience in private equity or has completed the comprehensive private equity training.
