Investing in Ventures

 Dynamos in Real and Financial Markets 

A program of investing for growth can be pursued through spry ventures in the real economy, the financial forum, or a combo of both. In certain cases, a single foray into the marketplace could end up spanning multiple modes of investment.

A case in point is a business angel who provides a loan to a brand-new venture. Based on an agreement set up at the outset, or by negotiation at a later date with the principals, the loan could be converted in due course into a stash of common stock in the company. The business might then list its equity on a stock exchange by way of an initial public offering (IPO).
