VC fund (Venture Capital fund)

The most common type of investors in a start-up environment. A VC fund team comprises of experts in startups – sometimes they are former founders of startups or have experience in the field of finance or in a specific area in which they invest. They provide capital for fixed assets or other startup funds as well as convertible loans. The fund acquires a stake in the startup in both cases (however, a convertible loan is provided only later, upon mutually agreed conditions).
