Data & Intelligence


EMPEA recently launched a new self-reporting platform within FundLink, our proprietary database, giving GPs the power to view, update and add details related to their firm, funds, portfolio companies and transactions.
Our mission is to provide PE/VC investors and practitioners with accurate and timely statistics, intelligence and insight on emerging markets. Through FundLink, you can ensure your firm is accurately profiled on EMPEA channels: The data contact at PE/VC firms active in emerging markets should have received additional information on how to access his/her firm's profile through FundLink. If your firm has not received login details, or to learn more about this new platform, please do not hesitate to contact us at or +1.202.333.8171. EMPEA makes every effort to ensure your data is captured timely and accurately, and your participation and feedback can help us continue to make FundLink the most comprehensive resource for emerging markets private equity and venture capital data!

Additional Information

What is FundLink? FundLink, a proprietary database of private equity and venture capital fundraising and transactions across emerging markets, is powered by the research team at the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA). FundLink is a simple to use and secure, private online platform. Information in FundLink is gathered through a rigorous and multi-faceted approach. EMPEA relies on secondary sources and primary sources, including data contacts in general partner (GP) firms who have login details to review and update their firm’s details directly in FundLink.  The platform allows GPs to control which of their firm’s data EMPEA can make publicly available or mask for aggregate totals only. EMPEA uses the data collected in FundLink in its quarterly industry statistics, quarterly Data Insights, Data Dashboards, and other reports and publications available to the industry and posted here. Who uses FundLink? Only EMPEA’s internal research team has full access to the data housed in FundLink. The team updates firm, fund, company, and transaction details on a quarterly basis, as new information becomes available through primary and secondary sources. Data contacts assigned to a GP may only view and update their own firm’s profile. Why should GPs review and update their firm's profile? The most important reason for GPs to review and update their firm’s profile is to verify that EMPEA accurately captures the firm, fundraising, portfolio company and transaction details! We want to ensure the firm’s information is correctly and timely represented in our statistics and research. Furthermore, reviewing and updating the firm’s profile increases the depth and breadth of our private equity and venture capital data, which in turn better informs and educates the industry.
