Helping a GP unlock LP capital commitments

Despite high-performing deals, a spinout team struggled to fundraise because the GP could not prove its track record strength effectively. CEPRES attributed and verified its track record in a private data room, enabling the GP to benchmark its deals and showcase performance versus peers. With CEPRES, the GP could onboard investors and achieve its first closing commitment. Since then, the GP raised a second fund — also leveraging CEPRES.
