What Is VentureWorthy.com?|
VentureWorthy.com is an entry point resource for entrepreneurs seeking
capital to start up a new business.
Here you can find out if Venture Capital is a viable source of funding for
your business and obtain help in finding the backing that you need
for your enterprise.
Venture capital is a fund raising technique for companies who are willing to
exchange equity in the company in return for money to grow or expand the
business. It can be raised for all types of business, both technological and
Venture capital firms usually require a high rate of return on their
investment (20%+ per annum) and finance provided to the business is
typically in the range of $500,000 to many millions of dollars.
An angel investor generally wants less control of your company and a
return on investment, however the criteria for investment are likely
to be similar.
It follows that both venture capitalists and angel investors are looking for
capital growth and revenue increases of more than $100,000 per annum
and critically, evidence that your business can deliver this.
The venture capital business has suffered setbacks in recent years because
of high levels of investment in failures in the technology sector,
the bursting of the so called "dot com bubble". However, venture capital
remains a viable source of funding for startups which are able to deliver
the necessary growth that investors are looking for. Past events should
certainly not discourage entrepreneurs who have genuine winning ideas and
plans from looking for funds.
VentureWorthy.com is a resource provided by FundingPost.com that can
provide advice on raising all types of equity capital, venture capital,
angel investors, bank loans, sba loans or any other type of startup capital.
The purpose of the ventureworthy survey is to determine if your company is
ready to raise capital, if it is "venture worthy".
