SummitMatch Meeting Scheduling System – How it works

A Unique Scheduling Algorithm

Over the past 16 years at the ILPA Summit in New York City, ILPA has created a proprietary meeting-scheduling algorithm, which continually receives outstanding reviews from attendees. This scheduling system will be coming to London at the ILPA Summit Europe.

Meeting selections occur over a two-week period, during which, each organization must log into the meeting system to view a pre-filtered list of registered firms. These firms will have been selected based on the initial investment criteria provided by the lead registrant. From this list, each organization will “rank” firms based on a scoring system using the following scale:

  • Category 1: Yes
  • Category 2: Neutral
  • Category 3: No

They will also be asked to note:

  • Investor Status (Existing or Prospective)
  • Knowledge Level (Familiar or Unfamiliar)

Attendees will be provided with the GP participant list in an Excel file (to filter by sector, fund size or geography), or in a PDF (which includes detailed profile and fund history) to assist in the ranking process.

GP organisations will also rank LPs based on their desire to meet with them. During the optimization process, the SummitMatch algorithm will compute the LP and GP selections, generating a score for each LP/GP combination. Meeting schedules will then be populated based on this combined score, prioritizing the best scores to indicate mutual interest. The goal of the system is to fill both LPs’ and GPs’ meeting schedules with their top preferences.
