Venture Capitalist Vs Value Investors

             Generally, Venture Capitalist and value investors don't talk to each others and explain their valuation methodologies .  There is a gap . Both are critics of each other, but never get on the same page.
We as value investors make fun of Venture Capitalist on social media , they should also doing same but not sure about that :) .

What is the definition of Venture capital? 
            Venture capital (VC) is money provided to seed, early-stage, emerging and emerging growth companies. The venture capital funds invest in companies in exchange for equity in the companies it invests in, which usually have a novel technology or business model in high technology industries, such as biotechnology , IT and now a days e-commerce.

Bridge between Venture Capitalist  and Value Investors (or Secondary Market Investors )
        Professor Aswath Damodaran has made attempts to provide some bridge . If you don't know Aswath Damodaran then he is a Professor of Finance at the Stern School of Business at New York University (One of worlds top ranking business school , maybe 5-6) , where he teaches corporate finance and equity valuation. He is another professor like Professor Sanjay Bakshi from whom we can learn lots.
