The National Venture Capital Association

The NVCA is another group that you should know about. Its Web site, located at nvca.com, is chock full of a lot of information about venture capital and the people who hand it out.

The U.S. government's Small Business Administration itself can be found online at www.sbaonline.sba.gov/. Meanwhile, its very exciting Small Business Investment Company–related site is found at. sba.gov/INV/. Any reasonable person could get absolutely giddy while reading some of the stuff that it has on that Web site. Check out this exciting quote taken from its mission statement:

"Congress created the Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) Program in 1958 to fill the gap between the availability of venture capital and the needs of small businesses in start-up and growth situations. SBICs, licensed and regulated by the SBA, are privately owned and managed investment firms that use their own capital, plus funds borrowed at favorable rates with an SBA guarantee, to make venture capital investments in small businesses."

The National Venture Capital Association home page is shown in Figure 10.5.
