c*funds is a boutique fund placement agency in the heart of Amsterdam (HQ) and also has a Singapore office as well as New York representation. We have 7 years of industry track record.

We do fundraising campaigns for fund managers with a target fund size from 100m EUR- 2b EUR. With a strong focus on raising Venture Capital and Growth (Climate tech, deep tech, AI, blockchain, health tech, etc.) funds, but also for credit, buyout, or hedge funds. c*funds also operates in the secondary markets and direct deal fundraising. c*funds currently consists of a rock-solid team of 14 international placement agents. The team was carefully recruited and constitutes a very high level of motivation and appreciation for the industry and shows aligned interests with our clients to close the deals.

 

c*funds has an independent advisory operation, it is self-invested and bottom-up developed, and therefore we can offer the boutique/ hands-on approach in fundraising that fits to the needs of so many GPs. We transact with 550+ qualified LPs worldwide. The majority of our LPs are Single and Multi-Family Offices across the globe.

 

Currently, we have an exciting,  leadership position open at the Amsterdam office.  The c*funds team is highly entrepreneurial and we also expect the new Vice President to bring a “beyond the curve” excellence on board in many areas.
