International contributors examine the role of venture capital institutions in financing technology-based ventures in this collection of research presented by Bartzokas and Mani, both researchers at the UN University Institute for New Technologies. Case studies from developed and developing countries explore the ability of venture capital institutions to render a host of value-added support functions, such as setting up management teams and designing strategic plans for fledgling enterprises. The book will be valuable for scholars and students of the theory and practice of financing innovation, and will also be of interest to governments, NGOs, financial institutions, and multilateral agencies.
