What is the difference between a venture capital and a PE fund?


Typically, Private Equity fund makes much larger investments at later stages of a company’s business cycle and will tend to have almost 100% ownership. A buyout Private Equity fund will almost always invest at the mature phase of a company. There are also growth PE funds which invest in the growth phase of the company infusing very little leverage and this is where the lines between Private Equity and Venture Capital start to blur. A venture capital company will almost never make use of leverage and will invest in earlier stages of a company’s life cycle. Unlike Private Equity, venture capital companies will also never own 100% of the businesses they invest in.
