Venture capital firms (VCs) provide financing in return for a proportion of your shares in the expectation of receiving high returns on their investment. Business angels are wealthy individuals who do the same – although they will usually expect a higher degree of personal involvement than a VC. VCs and angels will often lend you money as part of their investment, as well as providing share capital.
Why venture capital?
You could consider venture capital (also known as private equity finance) if you have been unable to raise finance through traditional routes such as bank borrowings, your own resources, or the sale and lease back of premises or other assets.
