Venture Capital Business Plan:
- Venture capital is a term denoting funds provided to high-risk, high-potential companies in the start-up growth stage.
- Venture capital investment firms get a return on their investment by owning equity in the company being funded.
- VC firms frequently pool third-party funds together to support their investments.
- Venture capitalists are most commonly interested in innovative technologies that have the potential to generate high rates of return at an early stage.
- Venture capital is often attractive to newer companies with limited capital to launch their company to the next level.
Angel Investor Business Plan:
- Just like the name implies, angel investors are usually successful entrepreneurs or wealthy business people looking to swoop in and invest in a good opportunity.
- They most frequently support companies in the same or a complementing industry.
- Angel investors have a more intimate, involved relationship with the companies they invest in and often expect to be more hands-on than a venture capitalist firm would.
- This person-to-person interaction can make angel investors a good option for small companies or an inexperienced entrepreneur seeking a more mentorship-based investment relationship.
Private Investor Business Plan:
- Private investors are individuals and therefore have very personal motivations that vary as much as people themselves do.
- Private investors are often found within a business owner's personal circle of influence and can be anyone from family and friends to professional investors and speculators.
- A private investor is typically looking to lend a company money at a better rate of return than that of conventional funding sources; especially in the case of family members and friends, where their financial risk is often greater.
