• Are you willing to pass on minority or majority steak of your company to a venture capital firm?

• Do you believe that this venture capital will help your company develop fast?

• Do you have a good business plan?

• Do you know how much capital you will need and how to use it?

• Are you willing to cooperate with a venture capital firm for the development of your firm?

 

If the answers to the above questions are “yes” then indeed venture capital financing is appropriate for you.

Venture capital firms usually have a specific investment strategy and can invest:

• In different stages of the development of a firm e.g. startup, development, expansion  etc.

• In specific sectors (e.g. biomedicine, IT etc)

• With specific investment capital (e.g. <EUR 1mln, EUR 1.5mln, >EUR 5mln)

• In a specific geographical location

• With a specific type of investment (e.g.: equity, bonds, mezzanine etc)

• With different liquidity and performance expectations

• With active or passive support in management

The best choice that leads to the best possible value for all interested parties occurs when the venture capital firm’s investment criteria match the manager’s or the company’s special needs.
