Capital medical venture or angel investor? Most entrepreneurs are confounded with this all-important question today. Who will invest money in their business or, more importantly which sort of investment should they approach? What would suit their business better?
Capital Medical Venture
A really good way of gauging this is by gauging your business venture. If you are confident of the ability of your business venture to provide good returns really soon, then go for venture capital firms. If you want to start large, then this is for you. These firms invest a whole lot of money, yes Im talking big money here their starting investment is five hundred thousand dollars and it goes into millions! But, they also charge a really high rate of interest more than twenty percent per annum. Plus you need to give them quick returns, which generally is not a problem in the medicine field.
A capital medical venture is a venture which is quite challenging to finance because it is a type of venture which requires an extensive expertise of the industry and a very, very methodical form of planning. The good news is nowadays, venture capital firms are actively on the lookout for companies like manufacturers of diagnostics, radiation systems of the intracoronary kind and surgical instruments which are minimally invasive. So if you are starting out on a business in the medical field, a capital medical venture, then this is the best time to start.
There are groups of venture capitalists who are very generous indeed and are willing to provide an entrepreneur with two hundred million dollars on (hold your breath!) a single transaction. What is more they are willing to consider many different kinds of investment structures such as management buyouts, recapitalizations which are leveraged, minority equity positions as well. So they are willing to be flexible.
Whom To Choose?
Coming back to the main point. What are the differences between an angel investor and a venture capital firm?
An angel investor generally has his own pricate money which he is willing to invest in a business. But a venture capitalist gets their money from a collection or rather, a group of wealthy individuals. Thus there is a big difference in the motivations of these two kinds of investors and the reasons behind why they invest.
A venture capital firms main motivation is to get good returns. Moreover, competition for their limited kind of funding is extremely keen. Many firms fund only about five companies out of say, every thousand business proposals they view per year so they are extremely cautious.
Angel investors have, on the other hand, experience in building a company. Sometimes, it gives them a high to invest in new startups and that is their sole reason for investment. Sometimes an idea catches their fancy and they invest for the heck of it.
A capital medical venture is often a risky business, so opting for an gel investor in this case is the best course of action for a new entrepreneur.
