A form of active equity financing, venture capital is a generally utilized by young firms in a high growth stage. The venture capital process begins with the submission of a business plan. This plan, submitted by a startup firm to a venture capitalist, helps to determine if the firm meets the requirements of the investment fund. A period of due diligence follows, which involves the completion of an in-depth analysis of the firm’s finances, operations, and management structure. The venture capitalist then decides whether or not to make an investment offer. If an offer is made, the venture capitalist then plays an active role in the ongoing strategic operations of the startup firm. The process eventually ends with the exit of the venture capitalist from an ownership role via a merger, acquisition, or initial public offering.
