Although banking institutions do offer venture capital, much of this money is available through non-bank related venture capital firms. These institutions vary in size, scope of interest, and qualification requirements it sets for applicants. Some offer start-up loans, while others lend money to established businesses. Some of these organizations have a minimum as low as $5,000, while others have a much larger minimum requirement.
