venture capital financing

Venture capital financing (also known as venture capital funding or VC funding) is a form of financing for new or early-stage companies with high growth potential. Venture capital financing is offered by venture capital firms, which are professional investment firms that receive investment money from state pension funds, university endowment funds, and wealthy individuals. Venture capital firms seek multiple returns on their initial investment in a startup company. When evaluating companies to invest in, venture capital firms consider many factors, including (1) the strength of the management team; (2) the size of the market the company is in (total addressable market or TAM); (3) whether the company has proven there is demand in the market for its product or service (product-market fit); and (4) how easy or difficult it will be for other companies to compete with the company seeking venture capital financing.
