Second Round Financing
This represents the stage at which the product has already been bunched in the market but the business has not yet become profitable enough for public offering to new investors. The promoter has invested his own funds but further infusion of funds by the VCIs is necessary. The time scale for the investment is shorter than in the case of start-ups. The VCls provide larger funds at this stage than at other early stage financing. This financing is partly in the form of debt to also provide some income to them.
Later Stage Financing
This stage of venture capital financing involves established businesses , which require additional financial support but cannot take recourse to public issues of capital. It includes mezzanine development capital, bridge expansion, buyouts and turnarounds.
