Doctors: becoming a venture capitalist

Shared by:

When it comes to investment, blue chips or real estate are the most popular options as people are more or less guaranteed some returns. A lesser known option is to become a venture capitalist (VC), basically, someone who invests in early-stage start-ups looking for capital to fuel their businesses. Statistically, only 10% of start-ups make it pass the 5-year mark. There seem to be more risks involved, with the chance that they might not get their money back.
