What is the Definition of Income?
“We often talk about 'income', but tax law recognizes a number of different types of 'income'. Some are general in nature, some specific to relatively narrow areas of the Code.

Securing Venture Capital Funding for Your Business
“Real venture capital is a very rarified subset of investment in startups. Most of it comes in amounts in millions of dollars, invested in companies that are already launched, growing, and needing follow-on investment. That happens fewer than 5,000 times in an average year in the U.S. And that 5,000-per-year venture capital investment compares to roughly six million startups in an average year in the U.S. If your startup is really a candidate for venture capital, you know that already, and you know how and where to get it.”
