    A venture capitalist invests in risky seed/early stage businesses by definition. So you would be better described broadly as a private equity investor, based on your self-described degree of risk aversion and “proven business” focus. Venture capitalism is a specific part of private equity that provides capital for risky, trail blazing ventures.

      I was thinking same. Perhaps, in reality VC definition is different in Nigeria like almost everything else….It is the same place you will find that Equity is “cheaper” than Debt (or the same cost in some cases) even though Debt should be cheaper by definition. Na wa! Anyway, good to see someone else caught it. Sorry to the non-finance people who may not understand.

    Did the interviewer during the introductory handshake try to snap fingers with Wole? That’s a no, no in a formal business setting Mr. Interviewer!

      They actually clicked hands, it might not be formal however it was good for the interview. A good hand shake has a way of endearing people together, more like a calming effect.
