Venture Capital is the contribution of capital in a company that is in the initial phase or early development. Normally, Venture Capital's investment is directed to technology companies or with a strong innovative component. This type of investment requires smaller amounts of capital but also the risk is high due to the lack of information derived from not having historical results, as well as the uncertainty inherent in not knowing what will be the acceptance of the product or service by the market.
