(This is Part VI in our series on different types of capital, including debt capital, equity capital, private equity, venture capital, angel investors and investors)
An investor in your business can wear many hats and the term can mean different things to different business owners and types of businesses.
However, usually, an investor is a person who commits capital with the expectation of financial returns.
They are definitely looking to grow their money and, therefore, they generally prefer to minimize risk while maximizing their returns.
In most cases, investors want to call the shots with your business and become part of your team, which might not work for some startups and business owners who don’t want to give up a share of the company.
