by South Summit

The LP Forum is a series of interactive discussions with private, institutional, and corporate Limited Partners (LPs) and an opportunity to network with the South Summit community of VC investors both local and international.  It is a private and exclusive space for the investment community.  The idea is to being more investors from the LP Community into the fold to share and learn as we discuss investment strategies and opportunities between senior decision makers.

We connected investors and investment funds at the LP FORUM Madrid. This was a chance to shake up and engage with one of the key players in our ecosystem. It was also a good opportunity to network and to establish business opportunities!
