venture capital
Funds invested in companies to finance new activities. Typically the investment will include a substantial element of capital invested in ordinary shares (equity) so that the investor's return will include a share of the overall growth in the business. As distinct from borrowing, the investor only recovers his investment if the company realises growth in the value of its shares. If the company fails the investor loses his money.
