What is it?.
Introverted Women Can Be Great NetworkersA Venture Capitalist (or VC) is a private financier willing to invest in early-stage or growing businesses that have a high potential to succeed in scale, in exchange for a share of the company’s equity. Venture capitalists generally merge their money together into a fund controlled by a so-called VC firm. Basically, such a firm (or fund) manages the money of many individuals and controls where the money will be invested. Usually, they do so in businesses or ventures that others may consider too risky for investment (for example, because they are still in their early stages). However, despite the high risk for VCs in investing in such companies, the possible return they might get in case of success of such business is much higher!
Types of Networks You Need as a Founder
VCs provide high amounts of capital in order for you to grow faster (going from 100000 $ for pre-seed startups to more than 20 million dollars for medium-size businesses), so you won’t have to worry about your company’s living costs nor, generally, about additional assets for the growth of your business.
