Venture capital has been integral in propelling companies such as Google, Facebook and Alibaba into the large multi-national organisations we see today. While the results of a venture capital investment may not be immediately apparent, much market research and many backend discussions are conducted to assess the long-term business potential of a certain company and industry. Closer to home, Razer Inc., Grab, SEA and Go-jek are familiar start-up brands that first received seed funding via venture capitalists.
