Venture Capital Investors
Venture capitalist investors are private investors for financing new or growing businesses and even struggling established businesses. Venture capital investors are generally high-risk investments but can offer the potential for above-average returns and/or a percentage of ownership of the company. A venture capitalist (VC) is a person who makes such investments. A venture capital fund is an investment which is often a partnership that primarily invests the financial capital of third-party investors in enterprises and businesses that are often too risky for the standard capital markets or bank loans. Venture capitalists typically get involved in larger funding efforts. Most venture capitalists do not get involved with any business for less than EUR 500,000.00 That’s not to say all venture capitalists are only after big business, however, they tend to get involved with businesses that require several rounds of funding and their exit strategy may be a floatation or for a fixed value beyond that of yours.
Some venture capitalists find themselves partners in new business they are funding. Most take an active role the businesses although a few, simply provide the funds and step aside, preferring to let the experts handle the day to day details of running their businesses.

When dealing with venture capitalists, there is a lot of legal work, concerning “Due Diligence”. The funding agreements tend to be complex and the exit strategy for both parties is defined by a lawful and legal contract. When dealing with venture capitalists, it is definitely a case of buyer beware.
If your business ever attains the level where VC money becomes a viable option, don’t jump at the first offer. Shop around. If one particular VC likes your business, then others will. Present your case carefully to as many VC investors as you can and carefully consider each offer before you accept their money. Take your time and exercise prudence.
