It's not just startups that Raise
The majority of capital that is invested in European startups comes from Venture Capital firms.
Yet, raising your own fund is painful, especially for emerging fund managers. Using your network, getting help from a placement agent or exhausting Pitchbook is often not enough.
What can we do to help you raise your fund
We have a clear strategy:
Improve the transparency of the VC <> LP ecosystem by publishing an annual report on insights from Limited Partners (LPs)
Provide you with opportunities to meet LPs who may be interested in investing in you
Deliver best-practice guidance for raising your fund

The Funding Venture Initiatives
The Capital Behind Venture
We produce an annual report on Limited Partners who have invested in VC firms in the past, or who are interested in exploring this asset class. We collect information related to their fund, criteria and process, and share our insights with the community. Our inaugural report is coming soon!
Access the survey here in the meantime.
The Funding Venture Conference
We host an annual event in Central London for Limited Partners and Family Offices interested in meeting 20 high-calibre
emerging fund managers (Fund I, II and III). The day involves a programme of panel discussions, curated round tables and networking opportunities with like-minded investors.
VC <> LP Dinners
Each quarter, we invite a select group of Limited Partners and General Partners to dinner in a number of European cities to discuss recent trends in the industry, network and exchange industry insights.
The Mountside Ventures team is awesome. Quality deal flow, impressive contact list and the team behind the best conference of the year we attended in 2019. They helped us raise funds, and introduced us to some of our best performing companies. Genuine value add for GPs, LPs and companies.
