Venture capital the term used when shareholders buy part of a company. The shareholders usually place money in a company that is high risk and has a high growth. The investor expects an increased return on his money either when the company is sold or when the company lists on a stock exchange and sells shares in the company to the public.
There are three different types of venture capital investment. Early stage financing or seed financing, start-up financing and first stage financing. Seed financing refers to a small amount of venture capital given to an entrepreneur or inventor who wishes to start a business. It may be used to build a management team, for market research or to develop a business plan.
Grants often require matching funds so, in some instances, the opportunity to attract investors is important.
