The purpose of this research is to provide readers with a broad understanding of the venture capital & private equity markets, including mezzanine finance. Throughout the late 1980s, the private equity market boomed. Who can forget RJR Nabisco and other well-known LBO deals? The funds invested in these LBOs came from private equity funds. More recently, in the late 1990s, the venture capital market grew crazily. Start up companies with product concepts but often limited revenues raised significant funds. These monies came from venture capital funds. But in the early 2000s, the venture capital market fell apart with the dot com implosion, and in the late 2000s & early 2010s, the credit crisis challenged the private equity market. Both markets are now recovering rapidly. This research serves to summarize the highlights of Tiburon's underlying research on venture cpital, private equity, & mezzanine finance.
