Equity Funding

Venture Capital & Angel Networks

Venture capital firms are professional, institutional managers of risk capital that enables and supports innovative and new growth businesses. Their investments fund new technologies and start-up businesses that could not be financed with traditional bank financing and are secured in the form of equity in the business.

Angel networks are individual investors who provide venture capital. These individuals look for companies that exhibit high-growth prospects, have a synergy with their own business or compete in an industry in which they have been successful.
