(This is Part III in our series on different types of capital, including debt capital, equity capital, private equity, venture capital, angel investors and investors).
Private capital is similar to a bank loan as it is indeed money that is provided to a business. However, the capital “loan” doesn’t come from a bank; government entity or from the public by selling stocks.
Instead, private capital comes from private individuals – or a group of individuals – who make investments (or loans) that are not regulated by the government or by the rules of a public exchange.
A private capital investment typically happens as a one-on-one transaction between the business and the investor. Therefore, the business can seek private capital anytime it needs it: startup, growth, etc.
