Venture Capital isn’t always the easiest form of investment. You take a bet on a small company with uncertain prospects. The company usually operates in a field that hasn’t been ventured into before, and there are few markers to tell you if it’ll succeed. And most don’t. Nearly 90% of startups fail, and Venture Capital firms are never able to recover their investments. But every once in a while, a startup succeeds. And when it does, the results can be astonishing.
