Capital is flooding into growth equity and venture capital funds as investors seek maximum exposure to technological change. The first thing to know about growth investing is that it has rapidly emerged as one of the most dynamic segments of the private equity industry. When we were approached by the founder of an emerging growth stage venture capital global firm, we knew that the market requirement for the same is at its peak.
When we met, we were mesmerized with the passion and knowledge they had about the growth stage industry. The team was focused on innovative global venture funds investing in growth stage ‘winning-bet’ companies. Being a SaaS platform aimed at making investor access a cost and time effective process we immediately got to work.” – Ash Narain, CMO, Marquee Equity
Venture capital is the financing of start-ups and small businesses by investment banks, private investors and other financial institutions. As a form of private equity funding, venture capitalists try to assess and invest in startups that will have a long-term return potential. Venture capital investments incorporate a high level of risk as only some of the VC-backed companies develop into successful and highly profitable businesses.
