What is Funds4Minds?

Funds4Minds is projected to be the biggest virtual cap intro event of the year.

Throughout May, iConnections will facilitate a series of private capital introduction meetings between alternative investment managers and allocators, donating $100 for every meeting that takes place to select mental health charities.

iConnections will also host a series of virtual events to bring the alternative investment community together, including coffee chats, webinars and fireside discussions, with leading allocators and managers.

Funds4Minds follows the successful Funds4Food capital introduction event that iConnections hosted last year, which saw over 4,000 meetings pledged between allocators and managers to raise a total of $1.9 million for Covid-19 hunger relief efforts. 

This event is complimentary for Allocators and Members of iConnections. Please register here: https://app.iconnections.io/Home/Login

meetings that make sense for you.

Host your own, or join others throughout the event.  Feel free to get as creative as you’d like with
the topic!  
We’re pleased to offer white-glove service throughout the event, with an IR team available to help
connect you to managers with relevant strategies, schedule meetings on your behalf, or to answer
any questions you may have about the platform.

How it works

Funds4Minds

1-on-1 Meetings

Institutional allocators and fund managers engage in one-on-one video meetings to benefit charities that help people in need globally.
Funds4Minds

Registrations

Allocators begin by pledging to participate in meetings with fund managers of their choosing. The more meetings they pledge, the more managers registered, and more money raised.
Funds4Minds

Across sectors

The whole spectrum of fund managers, including long-only, hedge, venture, private equity, real estate, private debt, infrastructure, and more, make donations to participate.
Funds4Minds

Donations

The iConnections platform lets participants select, confirm and schedule their video meetings, and our charity partners will distribute the proceeds to our named charities. iConnections will donate $100 for each completed allocator meeting during the month of May.
