Venture capital

Venture capital is a way of raising finance where shares in your company (equity) are exchanged for a sum of money.  It is a common source of funding for small or growing businesses that have little or no money of their own to risk.  Venture capitalists invest in these businesses with the prospect of a large return if the company takes off.
