How to Join a Venture Capital or Private Equity Group

There are hundreds of ways to invest money to earn a profit. One method that has risen in popularity in recent years is investing in new start up companies through a venture capital or private equity group. Being a part of a group like this ensures that investment options vary widely, and financial risk is not all allocated in one class. This will expose investments to a wide range of asset classes and it carries a high upside if managed properly. The tricky part is finding a venture capital or private equity group that is open to new members, and is will to teach their new inductees.

In finding a venture capital group to join the bottom line is that money talks. If you have the funds and the capital to invest, there is a good chance that an opportunity will present itself. It might take some searching and a few possible rejections, but the opportunity will come. One of the best ways to join a venture capital or private equity group is to go where the best start ups are forming. As with most areas of business, venture capitalists tend to flock towards the businesses they want to invest in. They need to be close and familiar with their investments.

A venture capitalist interested in a web development or social media start up will not flock to Detroit, but will rather go to Silicone Valley to find their next big investment. This is where the venture capitalists can be found. It is also important to note that they do not walk around with a sign on their forehead, and they don’t often have official office space or business cards to hand out. You can’t search in the phone book for a venture capital or private equity group.

The best way to sort out one of these groups, is to find recently funded start up companies in the niche you are interested in and see who they used as their investors. This will give a clue as to who the players are in the niche and which groups tend to do the most business. Once this research has been done, you can simply reach out to the members of the venture capital group and schedule a meeting with them. They will want to know your history, your financial stability, your business skills you will bring to the table, and how committed you are to making your investments a success.
