VENTURE CAPITALIST

Venture capital is a type of funding for a new or growing business. It usually comes from venture capital firms that specialize in building high-risk financial portfolios. With venture capital, the venture capital firm gives funding to the startup company in exchange for equity in startups. VC firms fund and mentor startups and other young entrepreneurs, often tech-focused companies that are growing rapidly in exchange for a minority stake of equity—less than 50% ownership in – those companies.
