The article presents a discussion about the gray area between growth equity and venture capital (VC). This gray area is a result of the decision of growth equity players to concentrate on sectors and industries where growth are easier to spot. However, the issue may be resolved as private equity firms, such as Austin Ventures, Accel and Greylock Partners, need to register with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
