Where Can I Read About Venture Capital?
Put simply, venture capital is the money used to start a business. Venture capitalists (or VCs) invest in a business, usually in exchange for a piece of ownership. 
These investments have helped companies like Apple, Google, Facebook, and Amazon grow. These highly successful companies have become household names and the benchmark for VC investments.
This corner of the financial world bears both incredible risks and rewards, and the best VCs study trends, research reports, financial statements, and other market intelligence to make sure they’re investing in the right companies.
“Many of the most successful and wealthiest people share one key trait. They are avid readers,” said startup executive and business columnist Anne Gherini
“Many of today’s most prolific venture capitalists share a strong passion for reading. Take Warren Buffett. When asked about the key to his success, he pointed to a stack of books.”
What are the Best Books About Venture Capital?
Publications like The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch, The New York Times, and Forbes all have beats dedicated to venture capital, but you can learn even more by reading books about venture capital.
