Venture capital is one way of financing equity, typically utilised by young, high-growth companies.
Investors are given controlling rights and a share in decision-making for fundamental strategic decisions. Collateral is not required.
The aim of the participation is to increase the enterprise value and then dispose of the shares by way of IPO or trade sale.
