Venture capital is an important source of equity for start-up companies. Venture capitalists generally finance new and rapidly growing companies. They add value to the company through active participation and take higher risks with the expectation of higher rewards.
When considering an investment, venture capitalists carefully screen the technical and business merits of the proposed company. Venture capitalists usually take an equity position in the businesses they review and have a long-term commitment to the success of that company. Going forward, they are actively involved with the company's management by contributing their experience, the experience of qualified consultants, and business savvy gained from helping companies with similar growth challenges.
Venture capitalists mitigate the risk by developing a portfolio of young companies to diversify the risk. Many times they will co-invest with other professional venture capital firms.
Typically venture capital funds are inundated with deals and will review hundreds if not thousands of files, only to close a handful. Often these funds are slow and ponderous in the investigation and decision making process, with managers exhibiting a bureaucratic employee mentality rather than an entrepreneurial drive in an atmosphere of high overheads, large research and consulting staff and top heavy management. Many unique opportunities are overlooked with nowhere to turn for capital.
