The resource and expertise of a Venture Capitalist not only provides funds, without the regular repayment liability, to a start-up but also provides several other less tangible benefits such as handholding and coaching. The VCs share a common desire of succeeding with the entrepreneuer. A start-ups success or failure is the VC’s success or failure. VCs bring expertise, experience, contacts and discipline, to the table. The presence of a venture capitalist also lends credibility to the company.
