IFC and the entrepreneurs become business partners, sharing in both the successes as well as the possible failures. If the venture succeeds, IFC benefits by selling its shares or participation (the “exit”). If the venture fails, both IFC and the entrepreneurs loose their invested time and capital; the entrepreneurs incur no additional liabilities. The exit occurs either by going public, selling to an industrial partner, or by the entrepreneurs buying back their shares or participation.
