The ABC of Business Incubation

Venture Capital

The kind of equity everybody is talking about, almost every start-up entrepreneur would like to receive, only a few companies actually receive and even fewer people or funds provide. Venture capital is an equity investment in a company with very good growth potential. This means: the venture capitalist (capital provider) carefully checks the situation and growth potential of a company before deciding on the investment — a nerve wrecking procedure for an entrepreneur. But: venture capital does not only mean money. This kind of investment also gives access to know how.
