Venture Capital Funds and Their Portfolios

The development of the venture capital industry, spearheaded by the venture capital funds, was and still is central and essential to the development of technology companies. The prolific and developing world of technology would probably not have reached such a high and advanced stage of development, in which entrepreneurs and companies literally change the world economy, without venture capital funds.

The uniqueness of venture capital funds as the most natural and suitable partners for startups stems from the fact that they usually have no extraneous interests which can clash with the company's interest: The main interest of the venture capital fund is that the company in which it invests will develop in the quickest and best manner into as valuable a company as possible. As such, the venture capital fund is the ideal partner of entrepreneurs in building up the company.
