  • Venture capital is a type of private equity capital typically provided by professional, outside investors to new, growth businesses. Generally made as cash in exchange for shares in the invested company, venture capital investments are usually high risk, but offer the potential for above-average returns.
  • A venture capitalist (VC) is a person who makes such investments. A venture capital fund is a pooled investment vehicle (often a limited partnership) that primarily invests the financial capital of third-party investors in enterprises that are too risky for the standard capital markets or bank loans.
  • The main features of venture capital are High Degrees of Risk, Equity Participation, Long Term Investment, Participation in Management, Achieve Social Objectives, Investment is liquid.
  • Generally there are three types of organised or institutional venture capital funds: Venture capital funds set up by angel investors; venture capital susbsidaries of corporation; and private venture capital firms/funds. Venture capital subsidaries are established by major corporations, commercial bank holding companies and other financial institutions.
  • Most venture capital funds have a fixed life of 10 years, with the possibility of a few years of extensions to allow for private companies still seeking liquidity. The investing cycle for most funds is generally three to five years, after which the focus is managing and making follow-on investments in an existing portfolio.
  • Most venture capital firms are interested in investment projects requiring an investment of $250,000 to $1,500,000. Projects requiring under $250,000 are of limited interest because of the high cost of investigation and administration; however, some venture firms will consider smaller proposals, if the investment is intriguing enough.
  • Different venture groups prefer different types of investments. Some specialize in seed capital and early expansion while others focus on exit financing. Biotechnology, medical services, communications, electronic components and software companies seem to be attracting the most attention from venture firms and receiving the most financing. Venture capital firms finance both early and later stage investments to maintain a balance between risk and profitability.
  • A classic angel and venture capital boom was in the making. As the dollar volume of the industry grew in size, the number of venture capital firms increased accordingly. The number of venture capital firms rose from 458 to over 1000.
  • Many U.S. and other foreign investors are evaluating alternatives for investments into software development, business process outsourcing, drug discovery and other tech and non-tech companies based in India. In the IT, life sciences and related sectors, many U.S. and India venture capitalists still make early stage investments into a U.S. company which has a subsidiary in India for fulfillment.
  • Some Indian state government funds are actively investing in India. These include SIDBI Venture Capital Limited, Gujarat Venture Fund Limited, RVCF, APIDC, Canbank Venture Capital Fund Limited, IFCI Venture Capital Funds Limited, Rajasthan Asset Management
    Co. Private Ltd., KITVEN and Kerala Venture Capital Fund Private Limited. Investments from these institutions have the advantage of lower ‘cost’ of capital and hence can be more attractive to entrepreneurs; however, the maximum amount of capital available is typically $500,000.
