Where do venture capital firms get their money?
VCs raise these funds from family offices, institutional investors (pension funds, university endowment funds, sovereign wealth funds, etc), and high net worth individuals (with assets over $1 million), who allow the VC firm to manage their investments.
Sequoia was founded by Don Valentine in 1972 in Menlo Park, California. In the mid-1990s, Valentine gave control of the company to Doug Leone and Michael Moritz. In 1999, Sequoia expanded its operations to Israel. Sequoia Capital China was established in 2005 as an affiliate to the U.S. firm.

Loan capital Venture capital loans typically are entitled to interest and are usually, though not necessarily repayable. … They typically carry a higher rate of interest than bank term loans and rank behind the bank for payment of interest and repayment of capital.
There are two basic paths to becoming a VC: founding a successful startup, or going through a sort of finance apprenticeship. Founder VCs are judged on the success or failure of their startups. VCs from the finance path tend to have MBAs and will look to recruit people with similar skill sets from similar institutions.
