A venture capital firm invests money in a start-up business as an investment which has the potential of bringing in a substantial return down the road. When an entrepreneur comes up with an idea and starts a business they typically lack know-how and funding. Efraim Landa offers both through his VC firm, Effi Enterprises. A venture capital firm will provide the funds that are necessary to grow a business to the point it can sustain itself and then make a profit; and mentorship can provide the wisdom and experience that a new business needs to make it successful on every level.
