What Is VentureWorthy.com?
VentureWorthy helps companies learn how to raise capital. VentureWorthy is an valuable resource for entrepreneurs seeking capital to start up a new business.
Here you can find out if Venture Capital is a viable source of funding for your business plan and obtain help in finding the investment dollars that you need for a range of businesses from a startup company to a profitable venture.
Venture capital is a fund raising technique for companies who are willing to exchange equity in their company in return for money to grow or expand their business. It can be raised for all types of business, both technology and non-technology businesses. Venture Capital also invests across stages – from the early stage seed venture, to later stage mezzanine financing.
Venture capital firms usually require a high rate of return on their investment (20%+ per annum) and finance provided to the business is typically in the range of $500,000 to many millions of dollars.
An angel investor generally wants less control of your company and a slower return on investment, however the criteria for investment are likely to be similar. Angel investor groups are great sources of private capital and frequently invest angel money into new companies.
It follows that both venture capitalists and angel investors are looking for capital growth and revenue increases and evidence that your business can deliver continued growth over time, to provide a return on investment.
The current venture capital market is rebounding nicely, from the past setbacks of the “dot com bubble”. Venture capital remains a viable source of funding for startups, which are able to deliver the necessary growth that investors are looking for. Past events should certainly not discourage entrepreneurs who have genuine winning ideas and business plans from looking for funds.
VentureWorthy is a resource provided by FundingPost.com that can provide advice on raising all types of equity capital, venture capital, angel investors, bank loans, sba loans or any other type of startup capital.
The purpose of the ventureworthy survey is to determine if your company is ready to raise capital – Are You Venture Worthy?
