Venture As An Asset Class


Venture investing refers to the financing of startups and small, early-stage firms believed to have long-term growth potential.

Venture investing has typically been done by venture capitalists and angel investors. Venture capitalists usually invest after a startup has seen some kind of achievement, often at a later stage of development. They normally pool resources to make larger investments, providing capital to help the company grow and acquire market share.

While angel investing technically encompasses all investments in the venture asset class, angel investors usually invest by the second stage or so – in the seed or series A rounds. They normally make investments individually in smaller amounts, in companies that have already developed a Minimum Viable Product or prototype, with early market entry and significant technical development.
