A dragon is a company that returns an entire fund — a “fund maker.”
VC managers (GPs) can have dragons in their portfolios just as investors in VC funds (LPs) can have dragons in their portfolios. A dragon is 4x as rare as a unicorn.
Are you a dragon or looking for one?

What people say about us
I love what ALLOCATE is doing. There is a clear need in the ecosystem to bring together LP's and GP's in a curated way.
Landmark moment to have all the European VC funds with their own targeted GP/LP event
Great format, having everyone do 5-10 min pitches, kept energy up.
Judging by the large number of emerging funds present, I am convinced that you’ve hit a raw nerve on the market.
Three LPs are interested in investing. This seems like a great ROI.
Thank you very much to you and all the team... great diversity of teams, topics and strategies... an incredible quality of funds and GPs.

ALLOCATE ® was created primarily to support the European tech venture ecosystem, not for profit. The event costs are kept reasonable with ticket prices affordable and fair. Because of this we believe GPs and LPs should pay the same price.
We are run by a team of volunteers, many of whom are GPs and LPs themselves. Our mission is to make it easier for LPs to find the right European tech funds to invest in and for GPs the right investors, by building a community of forward thinking collaborators.
If you are an LP investing in European VCs, or a carry Partner at an emerging European tech VC fund, you are in the right place.
ALLOCATE ® 2020 was hosted online as a digital-first conference. The 2021 edition might be back as an in-person event, subject to COVID19 restrictions.
