Venture capital

Why to deal with this? Venture capital (VC) is financial capital provided to early-stage, high-potential, high risk, growth startup companies. The venture capital fund makes money by owning equity in the companies it invests in, which usually have a novel technology or business model in high technology industries, such as biotechnology, IT, software, etc. Venture capital is a subset of private equity.
When is it suitable/applicable? The typical venture capital investment occurs after the seed funding round as growth funding round. In addition to angel investing and other seed funding options, venture capital is attractive for new companies with limited operating history that are too small to raise capital in the public markets and have not reached the point where they are able to secure a bank loan or complete a debt offering.
When is it NOT suitable/applicable? Mostly limited to high-tech start-ups. In exchange for the high risk that venture capitalists assume by investing in smaller and less mature companies, venture capitalists usually get significant control over company decisions, in addition to a significant portion of the company's ownership (and consequently value).warning.png"Mostly limited to high-tech start-ups.
