Introduction to Venture Capital

Before we take a closer look at the current status of venture capital in the Netherlands, there's a few basics to mention about VC. There are plenty of market needs that startup companies aim to offer solutions for. In order to innovate and create solutions, funding is needed. This is where venture capital (VC) firms come into play. 'Venture capital' is the term used to refer to private capital investments (venture funding) being made in private companies, for example, companies not listed on the stock exchange.

The general structure of a VC firm goes that investors are limited partners and the venture capitalists who make the investments & manage the funds are the general partners. In other words, venture capital firms raise the funds needed to invest in companies by opening a venture fund and securing commitments from limited partners. The costs of the venture capital fund is generally covered by the fund itself. However, in some cases the venture capital fund receives a fee from the investee company for services rendered or as a member of the board of directors. This being said, each venture capital firm in the Netherlands will decide their own structure and how they choose to work alongside investors and the companies being invested in.
