FAQ

Who can apply?

Slush x RAISE is open to European emerging managers. You are eligible so long as you are based in Europe and have not yet raised your 3rd fund.

I applied last year, can I apply again?

No worries, anyone who applied last year, including last year’s top 20 funds, is eligible.

How will the top 20 be selected?

As part of the application, you will need to submit a pitch deck as well as some basic data on your firm and upcoming fundraising. Our selection committee of 15 top LPs from across the globe will evaluate each fund based on information submitted and select 20 funds based on predetermined selection criteria.

Is there a prize for the winner?

Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to get our selection committee to commit to fully funding the next round for the winner. Something about us being out of our minds asking for up to 300 million off of one pitch. However, in lieu of such a prize, each of the top 20 funds will be invited to an exclusive dinner with our selection committee during Slush 2024.

When does the application period close?

The application period for Slush x RAISE closes 25 Aug. Until this time you are free to edit your application on the Slush Platform.
