Venture capital is a form of private equity financing that is provided by venture capital firms or funds to startups, early-stage, and emerging companies that have been deemed to have high growth potential or which have demonstrated high growth.
Raising money to fund a new venture involves entrepreneurs and investors in a challenging and critical process. In order to successfully scale, most new ventures will need to seek outside funding from venture capitalists or angel investors. Therefore it is critical for entrepreneurs to have an understanding of venture financing from the investor’s perspective.
Venture investors must know how to identify potentially successful ventures, how to structure deals with entrepreneurs and how to generate the high returns that characterize successful venture capital investing.
During the workshop session participants will evaluate investments in new ventures, create a forecasted financial plan and valuation for an early-stage business venture, engage in simulated investment presentations and negotiations between entrepreneurs and investors and will learn how to develop a portfolio strategy for a venture capital fund.
