I am launching a partnered search fund in Brazil. We'd appreciate hearing from other search pairs about their experiences as part of our pre-launch process.

In particular, while we know the statistics from GSB, IESE and other studies, it would be great to get a feel "at the coal face" for how investor expectations or comfort change with a partnered search, compared to the sole searcher model (either objectively, in relation to initial funds raised, search phase duration, number of investors, principal equity. vesting criteria, etc or more subjectively during the fundraising, search or operations phase).

Accounts of international experiences are very welcome, no need to be in the Brazilian context.

Happy to receive replies here, or arrange a time to speak!
