Venture capital fund (VC)

A venture capital (VC) fund is an investment fund that pools money from institutional investors, wealthy individuals, and other sources to provide capital to early-stage, high-growth companies. These companies typically have not yet achieved profitability and may require significant capital investment to grow and succeed. In exchange for the investment, the VC fund receives an equity stake in the company and may play an active role in guiding the company’s growth and development. VC funds typically invest in a range of industries and sectors, with a focus on companies with the potential for high returns. The goal of a venture capital fund is to identify promising startups, provide them with the capital and resources they need to grow and succeed, and generate strong returns for the fund’s investors.
