Fundless Sponsors and Independent Sponsors

Hey guys, I’m new here but have worked in the investments industry since early 2014 and just passed Level 2 this summer. I was working with a PE firm and they requested I help them get in touch with Fundless Sponsors or Independent Sponsors, which is a term I hadn’t heard before but from a little googling looks like it means operators or venture partners who don’t yet have financial backing but come to the table with deals for investors to serve as basically LPs in. Have any of y’all heard of an organization or group of these guys that I could direct him to?

Thanks in advance,


i’m a fundless sponsor. wanna give me some money? i’ll make it rain.
