What is Venture Capital?

Venture capital is an investment in a start-up and early stage business that is perceived to have high growth prospects but does not have access to capital markets. Venture capital is an important and necessary form of investment because it fosters entrepreneurship, especially in high-tech and other innovative industries. However, venture capital is not without risk. In fact, it is one of the riskiest investments available because many new companies fail or underperform. Venture capital firms anticipate this by diversifying their investments and hoping that their successful investments more than compensate for their losses. Report on Russian Venture market 2015: Venture Report 2015 RMG Partners.pdf RB Capital, a venture investment fund, has been set up as part of the RB Partners Group. The fund is focused on investments in innovative IT solutions, primarily, in the financial sector. Please visit www.rbcapital.ru for full information.
