A venture capital or private equity investment refers to an investment in a company by a professional investor, usually in exchange for a portion of the company’s shares. A venture capital investment is a great way to accelerate a company’s growth. The benefits of venture capital and private equity investments lie in professional knowledge of growth as well as the expertise and contacts an investor can bring in. The aim of private equity investors is to raise the value of the company through the company’s success, so that this rise in value benefits all stakeholders. Growth built with investors is also in the entrepreneur’s interest: it makes the company more valuable.
