Entrepreneurs tend to jump into venture capital without thinking through the significant pros and cons. Venture capital, or money invested by third party firms or individuals, is good because it provides the cashflow needed to launch or expand a business, with no interest. The downside is that the venture investors usually get a majority interest in the company (eg, 60-75%, depending on the deal). This can make it difficult for successful entrepreneurs to retain profits and control. Ultimately, the cost of using venture capital is very high, where financing a business off cash flow is free and borrowing from a bank, where possible, offers a fixed interest rate. Venture capital is most beneficial if the company fails. Unlike a bank, who can hold assets for collateral on a loan, venture capitalists who invested in your failed business just lose their money, or see a minute return on the shares.
