Venture Capital Funding

What is Venture Capital?

Venture capital funding is a type of financing in which a startup business receives capital in exchange for shares and an active role in the company. With traditional forms of financing, such as personal bank loans, debt is traded for the loaned capital. An entrepreneur, for instance, may seek a bank loan to help fund his or her business, accepting debt in exchange for the capital. This is in stark contrast to venture capital funding, in which the entrepreneur trades stock in his or her company for capital instead of debt.

Frequently Asked Questions About Venture Capital


Where Does Venture Capital Come from?
There are generally two primary sources of venture capital: venture capitalist firms and angel investors. Angel investors are private investors who provide their own capital to finance a business, often seeking equity in exchange. Venture capitalist firms, on the other hand, are organizations that specialize in funding startups and new ventures with the goal of generating a lucrative return.

Who Needs Venture Capital Funding?
  • Startup Businesses
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Alternative to Bank Loans
  • Pre-Revenue Stage Companies

While any business owner or aspiring entrepreneur can seek venture capital, this type of funding works best for startup businesses that do not have access to traditional lines of capital, as well as startup businesses that do not yet turned a profit.

Venture Capital Funding Stages
While there are certain exceptions that may call for greater or fewer stages, venture capital financing typically involves the following stages:

  • Seed stage - the first stage of venture capital funding, the seed stage, is often used by startups to prove their idea is profitable. Because it's done so early, investments are modest to mitigate the risk for venture capitalists.
  • Start-up stage - early-stage financing used for product research and development, marketing, etc.
  • Growth - the growth stage is where most, but not all, venture capitalists enter. Capital acquired during this stage is used for sales and manufacturing.
  • Second round - also referred to as a "Series B round," the second round is used by companies that sell a product or service but are not yet turning a profit.
  • Expansion - this is a stage during which a profitable startup seeks capital to expand its business.
  • Exit - occurs when a venture capitalist sells his or her stake in a company.
  • Bridge financing - used to acquire capital between VC rounds. Bridge financing is done to raise smaller amounts of capital and often involves the exiting venturing capitalists.
