What is the Difference Between Venture Capital, Private Equity?

This article first appeared in the Indianapolis Business Journal on January 25, 2019

Capital comes in many forms. Generally, it can take the form of debt (personal and bank loans, credit card debt) or equity (common stock, preferred stock, etc.). Debt is based on an obligation to repay; equity is a piece of the action.

SCOTUS: Citizenship Cannot be Revoked for Immaterial Lies

On June 22, 2017, the United States Supreme Court held in Maslenjak v. United States that naturalized U.S. citizens cannot have their citizenship revoked for making false statements to immigration officials if the misstatement did not factor into the decision to grant naturalization.  The ruling complicates the requirements for revocation of citizenship and will undoubtedly prompt both naturalized citizens and applicants to reexamine their applications to ensure proper procedures.

I am a member of the Leadership Lexington Class of 2015-16, a leadership development program based in Lexington, Kentucky. Each year, participants are asked to design and submit ideas for community service or charitable projects. The class members then vote on the projects they feel are most worthy, and the top four selected projects move forward for implementation during the course of the year. For each of the four chosen, the project’s original designer serves as head of their venture and is given a team made up of other members of the class to assist.

Not many people know that I crashed my first commercial airliner when I was eleven years old. Thankfully, it was only a simulation. My father is a pilot, and when I was in middle school and most adamantly wanted to be like him, I participated in a week-long summer aviation camp. Undeniably, the highlight of the week was the chance to go to a flight training center and (attempt to) navigate a jet through takeoff and landing via the flight simulator. Even now that I am training to become a lawyer rather than a pilot, it fascinates me how something so large and cumbersome can possibly lift off the ground. And now, after an incredible day with BGD for the Indy Signature Event, I have also begun to appreciate the marvel that is how racecars can possibly stay on the ground.
