Private equity firms provide venture capital to finance non-listed companies, promising start-ups and family businesses. Funding for these activities can come from financial institutions, large family businesses or investors at large. In exchange, they receive shares, generally a majority interest, which gives them power or control of strategy and financing structure. They work together with management to decide how the company could be more profitable, with the aim of eventually selling the more efficiently operating enterprise.
