How It Works

From June 15th to July 2nd, institutional allocators and fund managers will engage in one-on-one video meetings to benefit charities aiding people in need globally.

Institutional allocators pledge to participate in meetings with fund managers of their choosing. The more meetings pledged, the more managers registered, the more dollars raised.

The entire spectrum of fund managers, including long only, hedge, venture, private equity, real estate, private debt, infrastructure, and more, will make donations to participate. The required donation is $12,500.

The iConnections platform is now open to all participants allowing them to select, confirm and schedule video meetings with each other.

On June 15th, the event will open and participants will login to the iConnections platform to conduct their meetings.

At the end of the event, all donations will be tallied and our charity partner, Garces Foundation, will distribute the proceeds raised to the charities identified on our website.
