Institutional Fundraising: Selling a Fund (Alternat. Assets)

How to properly market, sell and negotiate provisions for alternative asset funds (Private Equity/Hedge Fund/other)

Created by Vasco Patrício - The Executive Kingmaker (MIT-Backed Entrepreneur & Coach)


Students: 2706, Price: $44.99

Students: 2706, Price:  Paid


You may know that alternative asset funds, such as hedge funds or private equity funds, are some of the most profitable and competitive in the industry.

But one area that doesn't receive much focus is the fundraising process itself.

Raising funds (usually, from institutions) is a very secretive and exclusive process, and knowledge of it is hasn't been public for some time.

That is, until now.

In this course, we will shed light on how institutional fundraising works.

How funds are marketed, sold, how information is provided in data rooms, what is actually sold, and how allocations are closed.

And when they are, how specific provisions such as fees, key-person events, and bespoke provisions in side letters, such as MFN clauses, are negotiated.


This course is targeted, naturally, at anyone who wants to master the fundamentals of the private equity industry.

More specifically, the ideal student for this course is someone who:

  • Wants to learn more about how private equity funds/hedge funds are created, raised and negotiated;

  • Wants to know all the possible provisions that can be negotiated when an investment is made in a fund;

  • Wants to know more about alternative asset funds in general;


Some people - including me - love to know what they're getting in a package.

And by this, I mean, EVERYTHING that is in the package.

So, here is a list of everything that this course covers:

  • The institutional fundraising process, from fund marketing, to information providing in data rooms, to due diligence and allocation;

  • The context of fund marketing, including myths such as that keeping funds hidden will not attract regulator attention or will make the fund manager have "mystique" and exclusiveness, to actual regulatory roadblocks to fund marketing;

  • The usual fund marketing channels and materials, from simplified versions of fund offering documents, interviews/features with the fund management team and CEOs, periodic updates and others;

  • How to actually sell a fund to an allocator using the PPP model (performance, processes and persuasion). Focusing on performance, on the sophistication of processes (ideally, institutional-quality), but also leveraging my unique persuasion tools to better convince investors;

  • What type of standard and bespoke provisions investors usually request, from changes in fees (management fees, performance fees, co-investment fees, many others), to complex clauses related to investment restrictions, secondaries sales, transparency requirements, fund financing restrictions, GP commit and devotion, GP removal rights, among others;

  • How to negotiate provisions with allocators, from strategic tactics such as reducing allocation size or breaking up syndicated groups of investors, to "in-the-room" tactics such as Implementation Intention or empathy to disarm the other side and make them more receptive;


Remember that you always have a 30-day money-back guarantee, so there is no risk for you.

Also, I suggest you make use of the free preview videos to make sure the course really is a fit. I don't want you to waste your money.

If you think this course is a fit and can take your knowledge of PE to the next level... it would be a pleasure to have you as a student.

How to fundraise during the end of the year like a pro

A step-by-step guide to take your non-profit fundraising efforts to the next level during the year-end season.

Created by Craig Severinsen - Storyteller and catalyst for change


Students: 1272, Price: $19.99

Students: 1272, Price:  Paid

        My first year fundraising I was petrified. The pressure was on to deliver and I had never done anything like fundraising before. One night I saw an email had a statistic that changed everything for me. The statistic was simple - 24% of all donations for the year happen in December, and most of those occur in the last week of the year. 

        I read this two weeks before the end of the year - I had to act fast. That week I put together a communications campaign that raised over $10,000 during that last week. I tried the campaign again, and raised $30,000 in one day! 

        This year, consumers will donate an estimated $48 billion dollars between November and December this year. You have the same opportunity right now to raise some serious cash. 

          This class will teach you, step-by-step, how to develop a strategic plan to reaching and motivating donors so that they donate. I will also include the exact campaign I used to raise that $30,000. 

        Did you know that non-profits who develop a strategic plan and refine it every year can experience up to 70 percent growth in year-end giving? Let's make sure your cause gets the funding you need. 

        Now, here are some things to consider: 

  • If all this course did was teach you how to organize your communications tools so that they work together, would it be worth the investment? YES!

  • If all this course did was teach you how to talk to your donors so that they respond and want to donate, would it be worth the investment? YES!

  • If all this course did was double your investment, would it be worth it? YES!

        This is the time of year to get your donors motivated, so what are you waiting for?! Let's get started.

Marc A. Pitman travels around the globe, helping nonprofit boards and teams get over their fears about fundraising.

Marc demystifies the fundraising process. He shows how even volunteers can have fun in the process of fundraising!

Now that training is available in this convenient course!
Marc's gone into the studio to condense his training onto video you can share with your board or team. Broken up into short "question and answer" segments, you can watch this straight through in one sitting, or just a little bit at a time.

By the time your board members have finished watching they'll be saying "I can do that!"

Marc also shares some great strategies to help you as well

  • How to overcome donor objections
    One part of the video you'll definitely want to watch is on overcoming donor objections. Marc details how to have answers for your donor's objections. It's easier than you think!
  • How to get bigger donations from your current donors
    In the section on "Upgrading Your Donors," Marc shows you how to get bigger donations from the donors you currently have without any other work. You can use these techniques immediately!

    Just watching this little section will end up paying for this DVD set many times over. In fact if you don't watch this section, you're losing some larger donations.

The tools you'll need
Marc also provides you with "Done for You" resources and samples. Need a prospect rating tool for your board? A pledge form? They're here in the resources. Just print it out. It's that easy.

Each module is short - just 5 to 15 minutes - so you can fit these into your busy schedule!

At Benvenuti Arts, we're about making the most of your time with efficient fundraising, not adding to your list of tasks.

Fundraising Metrics

Understanding what to measure and why for fundraising analysis

Created by Kirk Schmidt - Fundraiser and Mathematician


Students: 21, Price: $49.99

Students: 21, Price:  Paid

This course is designed to look at the metrics that we use in fundraising and the fundamental principles behind them.

This course has three main goals:

1) Get you familiar with different types of metrics that will be useful when measuring your fundraising

2) Provide you with fundamentals behind these metrics, so you understand what it is that they are actually telling you

3) Give you opportunity to apply your learning through quick assignments using Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets, and quizzes along the way to make sure you understand the metrics

You are going to learn the fundamentals behind the calculations that are common in the sector, but also tackle some important calculations that you may not be as familiar with. You will be able to understand why multiple retention rates are better than a single rate, the difference between cost-to-raise-a-dollar and return-on-investment (and how to move from one to the other), and evaluating whether donors will bring in more than you spend acquiring them.

By the end of the course, the goal is for you to be able to use all of these metrics to analyse campaigns. Which campaign did better in terms of acquiring donors, retaining donors, converting to monthly, etc. Did one campaign do better with revenue or better with retention, or both?

While math will be used in the course, you don’t have to be good at math for the course. There will be some minor calculations you are asked to do, but you will be able to use Excel, Google Sheets, or other tools to do it for you.
