VC for a not for profit company?
Quick question for the monkeys out there. Me and some ivy league friends are starting up a not for profit business. We're planning on running this business for the foreseeable future. Anyway, the question is, if this company becomes big enough (let's say about a tenth of the size of Teach for America) would it be possible to secure more funds via venture capital?
I know that venture capital inherently is used for for profit companies, but are there any organizations, people, firms, etc that would be interested in providing capital (for all intents and purposes, donating) to such a company theoretically?
