Venture capital is a type of financing that investors provide to startup companies and small businesses that are believed to have long-term growth potential.
As companies grow, they go through the different stages of venture capital. Additionally, firms or investors may focus specifically on certain stages—which impacts how they invest.
In a number of critical areas, including legal, tax and strategic matters, a VC firm can provide active support, which is all the more important at a key stage in the growth of a young company.
