venture capital

It’s a type of investor that typically invests in private, early-stage companies. Usually, venture capital firms invest in companies that they think will grow very quickly in the near future due to, for example, some sort of innovative technology that the company is developing. Venture capital funds usually take an ownership stake in the companies in which they invest (rather than, say, lending them money) and hope to sell that stake at a much higher valuation after, typically, five to ten years.
