Vulture Capitalist


Vulture Capitalist
1. A slang word for a venture capitalist who deprives an inventor of control over their own innovations and most of the money they should have made from the invention.

2. A venture capitalist who invests in floundering firms in the hopes that they will turn around.

Like them or not, many vulture capitalists make more money than the venture capitalists do.
