Venture Capital

Venture capital is financial backing provided to early-stage, high-potential firms or businesses that commit to the company’s long-term growth and need assistance in gaining access to capital markets. Venture capital investments are typically high risk, but will often have the potential of large returns and come from wealthy investors and/or financial institutions. It is an ideal avenue for companies that cannot raise funds by issuing debt, but it often means that venture capitalists will have some control over company operations.
