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.
