Capital and Venture Capital Resources

These companies are either providing or are seeking capital, venture capital, and advisory services for technology based companies. Even during down times there are still people with money looking to fund "the next big thing." It will probably never again be like the heydays of the late 1990s tech boom, where money appeared from nowhere literally in the form of stock market values, but some of the biggest success stories came out of the Depression Era (IBM, for example).
