What Is a Search Fund?

A search fund is an investment vehicle, created in 1984, to help connect investors with entrepreneurs and manage a newly created company. The funds are usually set up by one or two entrepreneurs who raise investment funds from different venture capitalists to find suitable investment opportunities. The creation of a search fund is generally accredited to Professor H. Irving Grousbeck from Stanford Graduate School, who created the model to help two students who were looking to raise funds for buying a business. 

A search fund makes it possible for entrepreneurs to connect with investors and raise equity investments. There are different stages of the development of the search fund, such as:

  • Raising the initial capital
  • Finding an acquisition deal of companies valued between $5 million and $30 million

How Many Shares Does a Company Have?

How Many Shares Does a Company Have?

Typically a startup company has 10,000,000 authorized shares of Common Stock, but as the company grows, it may increase the total number of shares as it issues shares to investors and employees. The number also changes often, which makes it hard to get an exact count.

Shares, stocks, and equity are all the same thing. A share is one piece of ownership in a company. When you own shares, you are a shareholder. Owning shares in a company gives you the right to your part of the company's earnings and everything it owns. The more shares you own, the bigger the part of profits you're entitled to.

When a company starts up, owners must choose an amount of stocks to authorize. This is the total amount of stocks the company will issue to employees and investors. Not all

Preferred Stock

  • 4 min read

Preferred stock is a special class of equity that adds debt features. As with common stock, shareholders receive a share of ownership in the company. Preferred stock also receives special rights, including guaranteed dividends that must be paid out before dividends to common shareholders, priority in the event of a liquidation, is listed separately from common stock, and trades at a different price than common stock.

Why Is Preferred Stock Important?

Preferred stock gives you a financing alternative to taking on debt. You generally maintain greater control over your company than if you issue new common shares.

You can also remain flexible for future financing rounds by keeping debt off of your balance sheet and retaining a call opt

Venture Debt

  • 10 min read

What Is Venture Debt?

Venture debt is a form of business loans. Companies often apply for venture debt to supplement money gained through investors. This could be because equity through investors is not enough to reach milestones or business owners want to avoid diluting company ownership.

Venture debt provides flexibility not found with investors and is ideal for businesses that are already equity-backed but need additional funding to complete a project. Ideal uses for venture debt include acquisitions, as a cushion leading up to expansion, or as interim funding used until money starts flowing from a new venture.

As a company is growing, it may run into some growing pains that could be eased by additional funding. Business owners can work with either banks or venture debt funds to secure venture debt funding.

Venture debt, also known as venture lending and venture leasing, can be split up into two categories: equipment financing and growth

Shell Corporation

  • 5 min read

What Is a Shell Corporation?

A shell corporation is a company with financial assets but no significant business activity. Shell corporations don't create products, hire employees, or generate revenue. Rather, they store money and engage in financial transactions. Shell corporations can be used for illegal purposes like money laundering or legitimate purposes like storing funds in the early stages of a startup.

Shell corporations may also be known as international business corporations, personal investment companies, phantom firms, mailbox companies, or letter-box corporations.

How Does a Shell Corporation Work?

Shell corporations hide the identities of their owners. They can be set up anonymously, letting businesses and individuals engage in financial dealings without revealing who they are.

Shell corporations are often created in tax havens. Tax havens are countries with few or no taxes on business, as well as laws against revealing b
