Unlike Any Other Cap Intro Platform

iConnections is a community that connects the investment management industry year-round. We focus on creating unique opportunities for you to engage, connect and build lasting relationships. 

In an environment where physical events and meetings are no longer the norm, we've reimagined how the investment industry connects.

Our platform makes it easy to find connections in common, schedule and conduct video meetings, share documents and track your interactions. By becoming a member, you'll gain access to a global community of institutional allocators and fund managers and capture every opportunity.

iConnections was founded in April 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic by Ron Biscardi, former CEO of Context Summits. iConnections launched with the global capital introduction event Funds4Food, which raised $1.9m for victims of the pandemic. The event attracted some of the most highly-regarded institutional allocators and fund managers from around the world, many of which are current members.
