The active management that a private equity partnership brings to its portfolio companies helps them to become more successful businesses with stronger, more sustainable futures.
About Venture Capital
Venture capital (VC) is a form of investment for early-stage, innovative businesses with strong growth potential. Venture capital provides financing and operational expertise for entrepreneurs and startup companies — typically, although not exclusively — in technology-based sectors such as ICT, life sciences, cleantech or agribusiness.
The main difference between private equity and venture capital generally is the age of the company. Private equity will typically invest in a mature company; one which has been in operation for many years, if not decades. Venture capital by contrast will invest in new companies — many, if not most, of which will not yet be making a profit, but which have a disruptive business offering with the potential of very strong growth. Businesses seek venture capital investment for many reasons, be it to grow their manufacturing and sales operations, enhance their product development and/or expand their business and hire new talent.
