Deal Wall —
co-investment opportunities

The Lorange Network Deal Wall is a space for Lorange Network Premium Members looking for co-investors to share opportunities in which they themselves are invested, with other Premium Members. These investment opportunities can cover private equity ventures, shipping, real-estate and other relevant opportunities.

Lorange Network created this space based on feedback received from its community. Furthermore, the Deal Wall supports the “learning by doing” approach, which is a fundamental principle behind the Lorange Network. The growing co-investment Deal Wall represents an additional space within the Lorange Network for more experiential or cooperative learning. Participating in a co-investment deal in a business sector, geographical market or financial structure previously unknown or little known to an investor, allows that person to absorb useful skills that can be applied to other business ventures, markets or situations.

*This is a sample only and does not represent an actual company open for co-investment.

Online Workshops —
real world, real learning

Along with Headspring, the joint venture between the Financial Times and IE Business School, the Lorange Network is now offering a series of practical learning workshops delivered by FT journalists.

FT journalists bring a unique perspective to each topic.

They are close to the world’s business and political leaders and know the facts before they become news, bringing real business relevance to each programme. They cover a wide range of subjects from geopolitics, finance, sustainability, leadership to diversity. With FT insight, coupled with Lorange Network perspectives, you learn to question the answers, challenge entrenched mindsets and understand what really matters from a business, political and regulatory perspective.
