Wealthy Venture Capitalists

Venture capital is the investment provided to startup companies that cannot receive cash by traditional methods such as issuing debt. Generally these companies are new to the market or have a short operating history. Although these are generally risky investments, if the company succeeds the venture capitalist can make a huge return on the investment. As a result, many venture capitalists have been the forces behind several successful starts such as Groupon, LinkedIn, Skype, YouTube, Paypal, Facebook and many others. Very few have success in this game, but the ones that can see the startups future potential from the beginning have reaped some enormous returns. Although venture capital is very difficult to receive, if you can convince one of these wealthy venture capitalists to invest in your startup chances are you'll strike it rich.
