520    Small businesses in virtually all industrialized countries
       find it increasingly difficult to obtain finance from 
       institutional sources. Banks have become more risk-averse;
       venture capital funds, previously of only marginal 
       significance, are now often concentrating their 
       investments on established companies; and management 
       buyouts and buyins and pressures to reduce government 
       spending have resulted in a reduction in public policy 
       initiatives. In this context there is a growing interest 
       in the role of the informal venture capital market as an 
       alternative source of risk finance for small business. 
       Informal Venture Capital: Investors, Investments and 
       Policy Issues in Finland investigates the phenomenon of 
       ̀business angels' - wealthy private individuals who invest
       in small businesses - who are increasingly recognized 
       throughout the developed world as representing the most 
       important source of venture capital for entrepreneurial 
       businesses in their start-up and early growth stages. This
       volume answers key questions about these investors, and 
       contributes significant new evidence on aspects of the 
       informal venture capital market which have not been 
       examined in previous studies. It further provides an 
       authoritative assessment of the effectiveness of policy 
       initiatives to stimulate the supply of informal venture 
       capital, based on the experiences in Finland.
