Introduction to venture capital fund

  • Venture capital funds handle the money of investors who seek private equity stakes in startups as well as small- to medium-sized businesses that have excellent growth potential.
  • These investments are usually termed as very high-risk or high-return investments.

  • In the past, only professional venture capitalists could take part in venture capital investments. Now accredited investors have the ability to take part in venture capital investments too.

  • Even so, such investments remain largely out of reach to regular investors.

Understanding Venture Capital Funds

  • Venture capital is a kind of equity financing through which companies can raise funding before starting operations or earning revenues or profits.

  • Venture capital funds focus on a particular type of early-stage investment, which is why they differ radically from mutual funds and hedge funds.

  • All firms that obtain venture capital investments are generally believed to be risky with a high-growth potential.
  • Such companies have an active role in their investments and they are known for presenting guidance and holding a board seat.
