Scaling a startup is not easy, even if it has high growth potential. To get the necessary capital, expertise, and experience to grow, sometimes tech founders look to venture capitalists to solve the problem.

For the uninitiated, venture capital is financial capital raised by a group of investors for high-growth ventures in exchange for an equity stake in the company. The companies receiving this funding usually have a unique technology or business model that could have potential to make billions of dollars.
