Introduction to Venture Capital

Course Level 3: Advanced

Estimated Study Time: 2-3 hours

Venture capital firms play an important role in the financial services industry, yet not much is known about them by the average lay person. The venture capital market is made up of private equity firms and venture capitalism is a means of investing capital and helping new business start-ups.

In this course on venture capital, we get an insight into how a company starts off based on available funds, and how they subsequently raise more funds as the company grows so that investments can be made in operations and other areas. Topics discussed include what shares are, how shares are valued, equity versus debt, and types of organizational structures. This course also examines the difference between bankruptcy and liquidation, if a business should fail.
