Venture capital

Venture capital is a way of raising finance where shares in your company (equity) are exchanged for a sum of money. It is a common source of funding for small or growing businesses that have little or no money of their own to risk. Venture capitalists invest in these businesses with the prospect of a large return if the company takes off.

Some venture capitalists will have a preference for investing in particular sectors, eg engineering, while others will be more broad based. 

Finance Yorkshire is a provider of equity linked investments to businesses in the region, ranging from £100k to £2m.
