Venture Capital Firm

A specialized investment firm that helps to fund startups and other privately held companies at various stages of their development. A venture capital (VC) firm creates investment funds with money that it has raised from institutional investors and wealthy individuals. The VC firm then monitors the management and progress of the company with the expectation that it will eventually go public or be acquired, thereby cashing out its investment.

Employees or executives with equity grants at a privately held company that has venture capital investors will want to see a waterfall analysis showing how funds would be distributed upon a liquidation event. This should indicate how much they would receive through their equity awards.
