Venture capitalists are important for start-up companies that are not
large enough to raise capital in the public markets or stable enough
to qualify for direct bank loans. The investors in these companies usually have a
great deal of say in how the companies will be run. Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park,
California is seen as a symbol of private capital, just as Wall Street is a symbol
of the stock market because of the large number of venture capital companies
located there.
