Equity Capital

Equity capital is capital raised from the owners of the company. This is different from debt capital which is money raised by incurring debt through the issuance of debentures and other types of bonds. Owners can choose to sell equity in the company, in the form of stock, to investors. This is usually done through a direct offering to the public or through an underwriter like an investment bank. Equity capital is used to get companies off the ground.
