What is Venture Capital?
Early stage companies often times need funding. Typically, if a company needs less than $1 million, or if it is not a high growth potential company, it is often times best to first raise money from friends and family, and then for larger funds, seek private equity from Angel Investors. We have a page dedicated to where to find Angel Investors. For early-stage, high-potential, high risk, growth startup companies, getting capital financing from a Venture Capital Firm often times is the ideal path. Venture Capitalists, and Venture Capital Firms invest in a company, taking equity, and often times playing a role in the management of the company.
