VC is a specific type of funding new business owners take to jump-start their new company.

This funding is private and can be taken directly from a partner. However, VC firms also exist, with the promise of investing a client’s money into a promising startup in exchange for a percentage ownership of the company, typically a minority share.

VC is defined as being high risk and high reward. With a limited or non-existent track record, these investments are often taken with the expectation that investors will lose money most of the time in hopes of incredible success.

So there are a lot of risks, with the hope and promise of wealth down an unknown path…hm…sounds a great deal like an adventure to me. … Wait a minute.
