Raise as a VC

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:

  1. Improve the transparency of the VC <> LP ecosystem by publishing an annual report on insights from Limited Partners (LPs)

  2. Provide you with opportunities to meet LPs who may be interested in investing in you

  3. Deliver best-practice guidance for raising your fund

The Funding Venture Initiatives

The Capital Behind Venture

We launched a report aimed at collecting insights from Limited Partners and Family Offices that invest in the next generation of European Venture Capital funds.

It is now available.

Download the report here for insights on how over 60 Limited Partners are investing in VC funds, and how they assess opportunities.

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.

Our next conference is being held on Tuesday 10th October 2023.

Our community

Join our community of VCs, LPs and Family offices. We host regular roundtables, dinners and community events 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 last year. They helped us raise funds, and introduced us to some of our best performing companies. Genuine value add for GPs, LPs and companies.
