(This is Part IV in our series on different types of capital, including debt capital, equity capital, private equity, venture capital, angel investors and investors).
Venture capital is another type of funding for businesses and startups. However, with venture capital (sometimes called “risk capital”), dollars are typically earmarked for startup or growing businesses.
These funds usually come from venture capital firms that specialize in building high-risk financial portfolios. In these cases, venture capital (also known as “VC”) is given to the startup company in exchange for equity in the company.
These investments are made to firms that have long-term growth potential for above-average returns.
