I read an interesting article today titled "Nasdaq 6000: What It Reveals About Tech Stocks And Venture Capital." The article discusses whether there is a tech bubble in the public markets (no) and whether there's a venture capital bubble (possibly). It's worth a read. Link:
In a couple prior posts I've discussed my definition of venture capital and compared early-stage venture capital to growth equity. In this post, I'll describe buyouts.
Private Equity is a term that has two common meanings: (1) as an asset class, which covers strategies such as venture capital, growth equity, buyouts, mezzanine financings and distressed debt; and (2) as a transaction type, where it really means buyouts.
There is often some confusion between venture capital, growth equity and buyouts, and this post explores the similarities and differences between venture capital and emerging equity. More specifically, this post will explore the difference between early stage venture capital and growth equity. Venture capital itself has a number of stages, from seed, to early-stage, to late-stage financings. By comparing early-stage venture capital to growth equity, the differences are more clear and understandable.
