Venture Capital Firm

The HTML to link to this page
 

A venture capital firm is an investment company that invests in risky but potentially very profitable new ventures. The funding provided by the venture capital firm is called venture capital. The venture capital firm may focus on investments in particular industries or technological arenas, or may invest in any attractive opportunity. Each venture capital firm sets its own criteria for accepting investments, if it is open to outside investors at all. Requiring an individual to be an accredited investor is the norm. The individual considering investing in a venture capital firm can perform proper due diligence to guard against fraud. A reputable venture capital firm is likely to be recognized by the National Venture Capital Association. A top venture capital firm, such as Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, will be very well known. Such a venture capital firm has probably invested in one or more major success stories, such as Federal Express or Intel. The term venture capital firm is often abbreviated VC firm.
