From the Inside Flap:

Venture capital is often referred to as the "money of invention," and its fund managers not only provide the money, but also other value-added resources to entrepreneurial firms. Studies have shown that venture capital–backed entrepreneurial firms are on average significantly more successful than non-venture capital–backed entrepreneurial firms in terms of innovativeness, profitability, and share price performance upon going public.

As governments around the world recognize that entrepreneurship and innovation are important drivers of economic growth, and venture capital continues to be an important source of capital for entrepreneurship and innovation, there has been a growing interest in rigorous theoretical and empirical analyses of venture capital markets worldwide. This book, part of the Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance, is an essential collection of the latest research, theory, and practice on venture capital strategies, structures, and policies from industry experts. This comprehensive resource:

  • Opens with a review of alternative forms of venture capital

  • Highlights the structure of venture capital investments

  • Examines the role venture capitalists play in adding value to their investee firms

  • Looks at the drivers of venture capitalists' returns

  • Reviews international differences in venture capital and the role of public policy

The expert contributors explain how venture capitalists source deals, screen investments, and negotiate deals, and also describe the philanthropic model of venture capital—a model that has been significantly growing in importance in recent years as this market segment continues to expand. They detail how venture capitalists seek capital gains by exiting from their investments through initial public offerings, acquisitions, secondary sales, buybacks, and write-offs. And they provide a comparative perspective on international venture capital markets to reveal the role of government policy in stimulating venture capital investment and international venture capital investment—and show how and why venture capital markets differ across countries in terms of size and success.

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, Venture Capital will help guide the theoretical understanding and practical implementation of this discipline amongst students, academics, practitioners, and policymakers alike. And while specific features of later-stage private equity deals are not covered in this volume, don't forget to pick up Private Equity, another important title in the Robert W. Kolb Series in Finance, to gain a firm grasp of this, and other, essential issues.
