What is venture
Venture capital is equity based financing for private companies, usually provided by experienced, professional fund
managers, who take an active interest in the affairs of the venture.
The recipients of venture capital are usually entrepreneurial
companies with limited access to bank debt and insufficient size and
maturity to secure funds from public markets.

We usually have a meaningful minority equity position commensurate
with a fair valuation and one seat on the Board. In circumstances
where the fund has a stake of more than 50%, for example in a
management buyout, we will normally have only one Board seat. We do
not become involved in operations and expect management to control
the company. We expect to attend monthly Board meetings and
participate in major decisions undertaken by the venture.
