“You can walk across room and you make it through Africa, Asia, and Latin America in about five or six steps, so it’s a very efficient use of time as an LP.”
–Carlos Rangel, W.K. Kellogg Foundation

“We are a family office that enjoys investing abroad and networking with globally-aware LPs. For that reason, GPEC is one of our favorite conferences—a meeting place for LPs and GPs who believe in investing in emerging markets private equity. Firstly, we meet LPs from multiple continents, sharing ideas that we would otherwise not be exposed to (e.g. healthcare, investing in Asia). Secondly, we meet GPs that welcome US investors like us, with the convenience of meeting here in the US.”
–Heinz Blennemann, Blennemann Family Investments

“I’ve met several LPs at one go. We’ve interacted and exchanged ideas. I’ve started conversations with people and will continue to bounce ideas off them. I’ve also met several GPs I was keen to meet and haven’t met at other Africa conferences.”
–Fulu Makwetla, Government Employees Pension Fund
