Venture capital financing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Venture capital financing is a type of funding by venture capital. It is private equity capital that can be provided at various stages or funding rounds. Common funding rounds include early-stage seed funding in high-potential, growth companies (startup companies) and growth funding (also referred to as series A). Funding is provided in the interest of generating a return on investment or ROI through an eventual exit through a share sale to an investment body, another trading company or to the general public via an Initial public offering (IPO).

Venture Capital can be made in four methods:

  1. Equity Financing;
  2. Conditional Loan;
  3. Income Note; and
  4. Participating Debenture.
