How to qualify for venture capitalist investment | Destiny Magazine

Most budding entrepreneurs cite lack of funding for their ventures as the biggest stumbling block to being business-owners. Fortunately, venture capitalists and private equity investors are at hand to assist and walk side by side with entrepreneurs as they grow their businesses. Venture capital (VC) is finance that is provided by investors to small, early-stage and emerging companies which are believed to have high growth potential in terms of their number of employees and/or annual revenue. VC firms invest in these early-stage companies in exchange for an ownership stake and usually provide growth capital, rather than seed capital. Unlike banks, they don’t charge interest or capital repayments.
