Invest in risky ventures Many things could go wrong that would prevent Columbus from returning to Spain: getting lost, starving, shipwreck, illness and injury, etc. And Columbus—for all his passion— might have been wrong. Own a portion of the company Even after granting all Columbus’ demands, Spain still retained seven-eighths of any returns from the first voyage, and seven-eighths of the returns from subsequent voyages.
