Thank you for taking 10 minutes to answer questions about your fundraising program.
 
Buyouts will combine your responses with those of other next-generation PE/VC fund managers to create a statistical report. Your individual submission will remain entirely anonymous, and we will not include your name or your firm's name in the report.
 
In return for your participation, Buyouts will send you a pre-publication version of the report. That will let you get a jump on your peers in taking advantage of this valuable benchmarking tool. You can also opt for either a $5 UNICEF donation which we will make on your behalf or entry into a prize draw to win a $100 Amazon voucher.
