What are the guidelines for who can be a deal partner?

A deal partner should be a person already in your network who provides substantial assistance to you and your fund in identifying, assessing, and negotiating fund investments. This typically would include activities such as assisting you in understanding a potential portfolio company's business model, assessing the share price, understanding and negotiating the terms of the investment, monitoring the investment after it is made, and performing these same functions for any follow up investments by the fund. You should not share carry for simply making introductions to portfolio companies and founders, sourcing limited partners, or for any reason other than that the deal partner will provide the assistance with investments described above.


Please Note: For regulatory reasons, we cannot currently support Deal Partners who are residents of Canada.
