Venture Capital Firms

If you’re a budding entrepreneur wanting to grow your business, you first need to acquire the funding to get things up and running.

You may have applied for a bank loan and been denied, being told that your business is too risky of an investment. In that case, you would need to look elsewhere for funding. More specifically, you want to find someone that’s willing to take on a risky investment in exchange for what they see as solid potential for growth.

Traditional venture capital firms comprise investors that gain income from people who want to grow their wealth. These investors take their money and invest it in projects that are typically considered too risky for banks to accept—projects like startup businesses. Founders capital partners work with founders to achieve business growth. Investors in venture capital funds or founders capital are typically large, wealthy institutions like pension funds, financial firms, and insurance companies. These players put a small percentage of their funds into high-risk investments.

Typically, venture capitalists invest in good industries that show potential for significant growth. Essentially, they focus on the middle part of the “S-curve,” avoiding the early, uncertain stages and the later stages when growth slows dramatically. Investing in the wrong industry is something venture capitalists try very hard to avoid.

COMMITTED CAPITAL

GSL gives founders confidence to drive their revenue machine all the way to an exit.

Other venture lenders spend months getting to know you, and then cap their commitments at less than 50% of revenue. We can unlock 2x your revenue in a single commitment within 30 days.

Types of Venture Funding

There are different types of venture funding, including options like private equity firms.

For instance, if you’re just starting out, you will need to gather seed capital. Once you get a little further along in your business you can begin seeking startup capital. At this stage your company should have a sample product. While it’s rare to receive funding at this point in the process, the funding you do get should cover items related to the finalization of your product or service. Early stage capital is often received a few years into your venture. This funding can help you increase sales and improve productivity and efficiency.

Once your company is well-established and has been around for a while you can start looking for expansion capital, which will enable you to enter new markets or improve your existing marketing efforts. Later on, you may receive late stage capital. Bridge financing is also available for those seeking a partner to help them find a merger or acquisition opportunity. Essentially, the type of venture funding you can receive depends on the age of your business, your success, and what you’re hoping to accomplish further down the road.
