EM Showcase Application

Emerging Manager applications will be accepted February 15 through May 15, 2024.

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.
