What is Venture Capital?

 

Venture capitalists typically invest in companies that
have already started their business and have proven
their concept with some initial success but need
additional funding to scale and expand their business
further. 

They look for companies that have the potential for
considerable growth and are ready to take their
business to the next level.

Eligibility and exclusions

 

Venture Capitalists look for businesses with high
growth potential, innovative ideas, and a scalable
business model.

They tend to avoid businesses that are too small,
have uncertain profit prospects or are in industries
with limited growth potential.

Benefits and scenarios

 

Through venture capital, you can quickly grow your
business, helping you do all sorts of things like
expanding your operations, or reaching more customers.

Venture capital can also connect you to investors who
provide valuable advice, mentorship, business 
expertise, and access to their own network of contacts. 

Venture capitalists often understand the challenges of
startups, and providing valuable insights and focus on growth.

 

Risks

 

Venture capitalists may require a larger equity stake
in your business than a business angel.

This means potentially losing a greater portion of control,
or the ability to make key decisions on strategy for business
growth.

They also usually expect to sell their ownership to someone
else in the future, which may clash with your vision and goals.

 

Things you can use to
secure the finance

 

To secure funding from a venture capitalist, you will
need to be willing to give up a stake in your business.

Venture capitalists also look for more established 
businesses with a strong and scalable business model,
a significant market opportunity and a competitive
advantage that sets them apart from rest. 

They also look at the management team's expertise,
passion and ability to deliver the business plan successfully.
