Finding relevant Limited Partner (LP) relations is as difficult as looking for a needle in a haystack. It is time consuming, frustrating and difficult to know the exact mandates, taste and screening aspects of the relevant LP’s. c*funds has heavily invested in understanding and updating the actual mandates of more than 350 global PE LP’s from our base. Therefore, we can accelerate the process of opening up meaningful conversations for GP’s.
If you are currently fundraising (€100M – €1B fund size) we can help you to significantly improve your fund offering (pre-marketing materials, data-room) as well as exposing your offer to the relevant LP community. We help you to get the necessary paperwork done and build the needed new LP relations (by video call, PE events, and roadshows).
All our GP-LP matchmaking is fully customized (to geography and sector) and supported by a deep LP base knowledge. Our LP sweet spot is in Benelux, North EU, DACH with an emerging base in the US and SE Asia.

We work very closely with our clients (GP’s), often acting as their Investor Relations Manager for the upcoming closing. We spend time with our GP’s to understand their track record, personal achievements, portfolio management skills, exits, multiples etc. so that we can market the investment offer properly. We help GP’s to reach the private equity market standard with their fund offer in terms of tools, phrasing and brand visibility. Often new managers need help with identifying their USP’s and structuring LP incentives.
We help you to stand out from the (GP) crowd.
We have a number of different fundraising packages for our clients:
After the collaboration period, we often issue an only success fee-based 1-year collaboration to follow up all the leads and to support your final closing.
Our terms are always a combination of a one-time campaign set up fee and a success fee. We conduct Operational and legal Due Diligence on all potential GP’s.
