Venture Capital

America has too much money.

In relation to your post the other day, there are actually venture capital companies out there that do that. They look for small up and coming companies that only have a lack of funds holding them back. They will basically do a thorough investigation of them and determine if they are actually likely to go anywhere. If it does look worthwhile, they will throw the capital at them expecting massive returns on it…

[…] Generally speaking, when it comes to computer/Internet related ideas there are people lining up to hear and invest in  the “next big thing”. It is a growth/growth market, after all. I have to admit, I’m not exactly sure who to approach to sell an idea, but there are firms out there that do nothing but invest in ideas and put the money up to complete and market a product. Since I didn’t actually create Napster, I haven’t done my homework and researched firms that could or would potentially invest in my product. :)

The process can work in reverse, but I don’t think that happens too often.

That’s the trick, finding someone to approach. Thanks guys. And no, I don’t have any business ideas I need capital for. I was just curious, after missing my train that night and having to wait 30 mins for the next one. (But in the future, this info could be handy :).
