Why (Venture) Capital is important? – WHAT of the “Access to Capital” problem Venture capital has enabled the United States to support its entrepreneurial talent and appetite by turning ideas and basic science into products and services that are the envy of the world.

Top-tier VC funds dominate in the West as VC consolidation continues Global “dry powder” is US$117.7 billion (capital committed to VC firms but not invested yet) and remains at a level similar to the past few years, as VCs invest at a pace that is reflected by their fund-raising volume**. *Kauffman Foundation, June 10, 2009 **Globalizing venture capital Global venture capital insights and trends report 2011, Ernst & Young Entrepreneurship Main Problems of Capital Availability in Fundraising through CrowdSynergy solution Statistics Entrepreneurs the World Crowd fundingwww.crowdsynergy.com 13
