Venture capital is a good example of how corporations can add value by using innovative finance. Venture capital refers to a type of investment where investors invest in high-risk early-stage businesses with the hopes that they can make money. The use of this form of financing is on the rise in recent years because it allows businesses to obtain funding without having them go through traditional banking systems or take out loans. In addition, venture capitalists bring more than just money—they can also provide advice and mentorship as well as introduce businesses to potential customers or suppliers that could help them grow and succeed. One notable example is Alphabet Inc.’s Google Ventures, which has invested over $15 billion into new startups since 2009. They have supported hundreds of diverse projects through this program and given entrepreneurs, who might not have access to traditional sources of funding an opportunity pursue their business idea.
