Glossary

Naturally, the book uses many professional terms that are part of the common venture capital jargon. There are also terms that are used to signify several different meanings. For instance, the term Venture Capital (or VC) is used to describe the area of investments of venture capital in startup companies, but in many cases it also refers to Venture Capital Funds or to the people working in such funds. The purpose of the following short glossary is to create a uniform, basic, and common denominator for all readers (for a more comprehensive glossary, see Appendix B).

A startup is a company founded by entrepreneurs on the basis of an idea, the majority of its assets, termed intellectual property (IP) are intangible. Initially, the company's activity focuses on Research and Development (R&D), in order to prove the feasibility of the idea and to develop the prototype/preliminary product.
