Prior research examining whether venture capital firms (VCs) add value to the ventures in their portfolios by advising their new venture teams (NVTs) has led to inconclusive results. Whereas most prior studies have assumed that NVTs value VC assistance, this study tests for the possibility that they differentially value two different types of VC assistance-business management and operational. We collected data by surveying 837 firms identified in the Venture Capital Journal that had received financing from venture capital firms. Only firms that received first-round financing were included in our analysis, which reduced our ...
companies and more often after the seed funding round as growth funding round (also referred as series A round) in the interest of generating a return through an eventual realization event such as an IPO or trade sale of the company. To put it simply, an investment firm will give money to a growing company. The growing company will then use this money to advertise, do research, build infrastructure, develop products etc. The investment firm is called a venture capital firm, and the money that it gives is called venture capital.

The Exit Phase of Individual Angels, Angel Syndicates and ...
This paper aims to discuss the exit phase of the individual angels, angel syndicates and corporate angels.

The exit phase of the individual investors is re-examined in the light of their reported professionalism and evolution. The extant research on the exit phase of the angel investors (with related insights ... market research, surveys and trends

Private Equity: 'Is the Golden Age Behind Us?'
Before introducing the panelists taking part in a session during the recent Wharton Global Alumni Forum in Madrid called "Relaunching Private Equity," moderator Raffi Amit summarized the challenges of both venture capital and private equity at a time when investors have become more conservative, returns are down, and transactions have declined in both volume and value.

The driving factor will be supply and demand.

How can a network engineer move into venture capital deals? | Ask ...
I'm a technology professional (engineering type) with no formal education but a lot of experience and a long history in the industry i'm in (networks). I have a strong interest in learning more about investing - VC, private equity, that kind of thing. With the background I have, how can I best insert myself into this field given that i'm not in the Valley and don't have a strong network of people with investment background? I think the role that appeals most to me is learning about the deals and being mentored, but i'd love to eventually some day evolve this into an advisory role for a VC based on my ...
