What Is Venture Capital and How Does It Work?

What is venture capital?

Venture capital (VC) is a type of private equity where investments lean towards start-ups or businesses with long-term growth potential.

Venture capital investors could be angel investors, investment banks, or other financial institutions.

Venture capital gives investors equity ranging from 25% to as high as 50%.

The potential of a high ROI drives the decision to invest, even as it can be risky.

How does it work?

Equity is created and sold to a limited number of investors through partnerships created by venture capital firms. As opposed to private equity, venture capital primarily focuses on nascent, rapidly expanding businesses.
