Creating something new is never easy. Most often than not, you will encounter obstacles that can either make you or break you. Starting  a business is tough, making it stable is even tougher. In this day and age of modern technology, everyone is trying to make use of all available resources on the web to make things easier and convenient to consumers. Technology related business is very hard to maintain since lot of programs (not to mention programmers) are needed to keep everything working, and starting a business in the tech industry is a huge gamble as there is no instant way of knowing whether or not it’s going to click or not. Another problem that you may encounter is not having enough money to fund the business itself. The answer to this problem is venture capitalism (See? Even the solution sounds dangerous, look into their meanings and you’ll know why). It is a form of financing provided by firms to small emerging businesses considered to have high potential growth, or those who have demonstrated a notable growth in terms of annual revenue or the number of employees or both.
