Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between venture capital and private equity?

Venture capital refers to funds used to invest in companies in the seed (concept), start-up (within three years of the company’s establishment), and early stages of development. In turn, private equity denotes management buyouts and buy-ins.

In general venture capital funds invest in companies at an early stage in their development when they often have a little track record of profitability and are cash-hungry. In contrast, private equity funds invest in more mature companies with the aim of reducing inefficiencies and driving business growth through often increased margins and/or new sources of revenue growth.
