Why Venture Capital?
Minimize

Obtaining venture capital is different from raising debt or a loan from a bank or private lender. Lenders have a legal right to interest on a loan and repayment of the capital, irrespective of business success or failure. Venture Capital is invested in exchange for a shareholding in the business. As a shareholder, the Venture Capital company depends on the growth and profitability of the business. This return is earned when the Venture Capital firm makes an exits by selling its shares when the business is sold to another owner.

Venture capital firms are very selective and may invest in only one in five hundred opportunities, looking for an innovative technology, a rapidly growing market, an exceptional business plan or process, or simply an exceptional management team. Venture capital firms are interested in ventures likely to provide a successful exit within typically 3–7 years.

Because investments are illiquid and require the extended timeframe to harvest, venture capitalists are expected to carry out detailed due diligence prior to investment. In order to increase the likelihood of success, Venture Capital firms occasionally incubate and nurture business in which they invest.

The Venture Capital Market
Minimize

The Venture Capital industry has originated in the United States, and American firms have traditionally been the largest participants in venture deals, and the bulk of venture capital has been deployed in American companies. However, increasingly, Asian venture investment is growing, and both the number and size of Asian venture investments are expanding.

Venture Capital is as a tool for economic development in Asia. In China, with a less developed financial sector, venture capital plays an active role in providing capital to start-ups and small or medium sized companies (SMEs), which frequently do not qualify for bank loans.

Venture Capital firms invested $21.2 billion in 2,725 deals in the U.S. through the third quarter of 2011, according to the MoneyTree Report by PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Venture Capital Association. For all of 2010, Venture capital firms invested $23.4 billion in 3,496 deals.
