Silicon Valley has become shorthand for a globally acclaimed way to unleash the creative potential of venture capital, supporting innovation and creating jobs. In The Venture Capital State Robyn Klingler-Vidra traces how and why different states have adopted distinct versions of the Silicon Valley model. Venture capital seeks high rewards but is enveloped in high risk. The authors deep investigations of venture capital policymaking in East Asian states (Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore) show that success does not reflect policymakers ability to replicate the Silicon Valley model. Instead, she argues, performance reflects their skill in adapting a highly lauded model to their local context. Policymakers are contextually rational in their learning; their context-rooted norms shape their preferences. The normative context for learning about policy-how elites see themselves and what they deem as locally appropriate-informs how they design their efforts. The Venture Capital State offers a novel ...

Kia Kokalitcheva. WASHINGTON DC: Silicon Valley got a black eye a decade ago when its big venture capital foray into expensive and nascent cleantech didnt pan out-but its recently renewed interest in a wider scope of technologies that can tackle the climate crisis could be different this time around.. Why it matters: Climate change is one of the most pressing challenges of our time, and the tech industrys innovation could be a powerful tool to stem it.. Flashback: Several years after the Dotcom bust, a number of prominent venture capital firms like Kleiner Perkins, DFJ, and Khosla Ventures bet big on clean tech as the next big thing. Venture capital jumped from about $300 million a year in cleantech investments between 1996 and 2005, to $1.7 billion in 2006, and peaked at $4.3 billion in 2011, according to the NVCA. And while some investors did well and backed successful companies, the spectacular crumblings of companies like Solyndra and Fisker kept a lot of VCs and limited partners away for ...

This is where you take the go-to-market strategy you developed in stage two, coupled with the improvements youve made to your product through your pilot users, and launch a full-scale plan to attract, win and keep customers. This is where you start to grow your team substantially for the first time, largely by hiring business development representatives, inside sellers, outside sales representatives, marketers and customer success reps, depending on the talent needs of your go-to-market strategy. Typically, the venture capital employed at this stage is called your A-round, or the first of what may be many future rounds of venture capital, and its often sourced from organized venture funds. Venture funds are a unique type of investment vehicle. Unlike angel investors, where individuals make the decisions about what startups to invest in with their own money, venture funds are made up of limited partners or LPs who sign over money to the care of a group of managing partners who are ...
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues are becoming more and more significant for comprehensive evaluation of companies responsible investing activities. Over the years, the growth in corporate responsibility to the society and policies towards environmental consciousness has necessitated the need for comprehensive ESG integration into investment decision-making process and the impact of such activities on company‟s financial performance. Although, studies suggest that there is an increasing trend in ESG considerations among large-cap companies and public investors, little have been written about the link with private investors. Venture capital and private equity investors have an important role in shaping current innovative companies to become future leaders in the market and therefore posses the ability to influence entrepreneurs towards sustainability by incorporating ESG issues in their investment selection processes.. This study sought to find out if venture capital and private ...

Venture capital firms build teams with some of the smartest talent out there - individuals who have built companies, graduated at the top of their class from top universities, and can navigate ambiguity and pinpoint billion-dollar opportunities.. Venture capital is an incredibly multi-disciplinary job, says Carlie Smith, talent manager at OpenView Venture Partners. You need to have research skills to understand markets and develop theses, you need to be analytical enough to understand operating metrics, and be persuasive enough to win a deal.. Smith points out that in junior or mid-level roles, VC firms must often look for competencies and traits that are indicators for future successes, since candidates dont yet have the experience to check the boxes of what VC firms need.. VC firms are often looking for candidates who are unicorns, which is why its crucial for them to ask the right questions. So, we asked recruiters and hiring managers from several firms to nominate their favorite ...
We study whether venture capital firms with higher status and reputation are more risk tolerant due to their position in the field as opposed to lower status venture firms which might be more risk averse, due to less proven capabilities. We explore this possibility by considering whether or not role incongruity and gender stereotyping by venture capital firms lead to perceptions of women entrepreneurs as more risky investments. Results show that VC firm status produces a difference in risk tolerance and risk aversion in terms of investments in companies with women entrepreneurs, with higher status firms more likely to invest in women entrepreneurs. In addition, we find that companies with women CEOs are likely to be older and bigger and receive lower valuations than companies with men CEOs.

This paper examines how organizational structure affects behavior and outcomes, studying the performance of different types of venture capital organizations. We find a strong positive relationship between the degree of specialization by individual venture capitalists at a firm and its success. When the individual investment professionals are highly specialized themselves, the marginal effect of increasing overall firm specialization is much weaker. The poorer performance by generalists appears to be due to both an inefficient allocation of funding across industries and poor selection of investments within industries. Venture capital organizations with more experience tend to outperform those with less experience.

Too often, the traditional approach to compliance included reactive adoption of quality solutions, resulting in a collection of disparate systems with little visibility across the enterprise. In the new paradigm, the emphasis on collaboration with internal and external stakeholders, plus integration across business functions in support of continuous improvement, supports implementation of modern 100% cloud- based EQMS to help medical device companies evolve.. Following tradition has caused the medical device industry to fall decades behind in its approach to quality, resulting in capabilities which are significantly lower than other industries. As proof, consider the six-sigma defects-per-million evaluation comparing airline baggage handling and medical device manufacturing. Airlines achieve a score of more than 4 sigma while medical device companies lag behind, scoring less than 4 sigma.. In the new Case for Quality initiative, all 16 participating medical device companies report they would ...

Business Insider tapped investors, founders of venture capital funds, managing partners, CEOs, and MBA professors for their recommendations.
When EDF Ventures launched in Ann Arbor in 1987 to invest in university-based technologies, the University of Michigan had one person working part time on technology transfer.. And at the time, the only other local venture capitalist in Southeast Michigan was Ian Bund.. We were considered an oddity, said EDF co-founder Mary Campbell. Youre going to fund a professor? Why would you do that? . Today, the tech transfer office at UM employs 28 and has a variety of entrepreneurial support services, including incubator space at the schools north campus for some of its licensed startups.. Growth of UMs tech transfer is mirrored by growth of Michigans venture capital industry. Funds that Campbell and Bund were associated with, less than $10 million, are quaint by todays standards.. Being an early adopter has been good to EDF. It has made a lot of money for its limited partners over the years through the sale or public offerings of such university-licensed portfolio companies as IntraLase, ...
Clearbanc is most known for its 20-minute term sheet that offers growth capital to e-commerce companies. Last October, Clearbanc told Crunchbase News it intended to lend another $1 billion to direct-to-consumer founders who need capital to pay for inventory expenses over the next year, after lending $1 billion to 3,300 companies in 2019.. Its capital comes from the general partner and limited partner funds raised over the last few years, and because of the nature of the returns, Clearbanc reinvests the capital as its repaid.. ClearAngel aims to automate parts of this value-add component and not only challenge VCs, but help the 99.5 percent of startups that may never get VC and need alternative financing, co-founder and CEO Andrew DSouza said in an interview.. Venture capital is not always the best way to fund most e-commerce and software businesses, he said. If you try going to the bank, you dont have enough assets.

Next year could be a fundraising drought for promising medical device start-ups in Minnesota.. Venture capitalists are feeling less confident about making investments in 2012, with 58 percent of them predicting fewer investments in biopharmaceutical and medical device businesses, according to a national survey from the National Venture Capital Association.. Despite the fact that venture capitalists and entrepreneurs are well-positioned to thrive, externalities are keeping optimism at bay, said Mark Heesen, the associations president. Issues impacting the industry include economic instability in the United States and abroad, along with public policy issues, he added.. In Minnesota, the problem has been exacerbated, because the majority of venture capital investments in the state go toward medical device companies. Last year, venture capital investments hit its lowest level in 15 years of record keeping. The association has been active in trying to change how the nations Food and Drug ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! The joint determination of capital structure and investment risk is examined. Optimal capital structure reflects both the tax advantages of debt less default costs (Modigliani and Miller (1958, 1963)), and the agency costs resulting from asset substitution (Jensen and Meckling (1976)). Agency costs restrict leverage and debt maturity and increase yield spreads, but their importance is small for the range of environments considered. Risk management is also examined. Hedging permits greater leverage. Even when a firm cannot precommit to hedging, it will still do so. Surprisingly, hedging benefits often are greater when agency costs are low.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper explores how to incorporate banks capital structure and risk-taking into models of production. In doing so, the paper bridges the gulf between (1) the banking literature that studies moral hazard effects of bank regulation without considering the underlying microeconomics of production and (2) the literature that uses dual profit and cost functions to study the microeconomics of bank production without explicitly considering how banks production decisions influence their riskiness. ; Various production models that differ in how they account for capital structure and in the objectives they impute to bank managers--cost minimization versus value maximization--are estimated using U.S. data on highest-level bank holding companies. Modeling the banks objective as value maximization conveniently incorporates both market-priced risk and expected cash flow into managers ranking and choice of production plans. ; Estimated scale economies are found to depend

Wednesday, October 29, 2014. A host of business school graduates are turning to impact investing, as social impact continues to gain ground with MBA students and the worlds largest businesses look to expand their investment portfolios to support innovation and entrepreneurship in developing countries.. Companies are under pressure to do more to create a positive social impact in the aftermath of the Great Recession and have been ramping up the amount spent on corporate social responsibility (CSR), with the total spend last year reaching $15 billion, according to EPG, the economic consulting firm.. Many companies have launched social impact venture capital funds, which pool capital into social enterprises. Unlike normal corporate funds, impact investments only pay out if measurable social benefits have been achieved, such as improving childrens reading or reducing criminal reoffending rates.. Business schools such as Oxford and ESADE of Europe and Wharton in the US have begun supporting social ...

This paper examines the spatial dynamics and emerging locational hierarchies of the venture capital (VC) industry in China, largely as a result of the global expansion of VC investors from the US and other advanced economies. Based on a comprehensive database compiled by the author from the best available sources, this is the first systemic geographic study on the VC industry in an emerging economy. This study finds that the rising cluster of VC supply and demand in Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen was enabled by the juxtaposition of spatial proximity effects, investment syndication, and interregional office networks within Chinas unique institutional environment. It further demonstrates that the spatial dynamics of the globalizing venture capitalism has to be understood in light of the geo-institutional mechanisms shaping the whole VC cycle of fundraising-investing-divesting. © 2011 Pion Ltd and its Licensors ...

The answers to these questions are anything but generic: these are not only means of various market disruptions, but also channels that can bring in future revenue and interest to your company. By focusing on the customer like this, you are also branding your company in ways that venture capitalists look for.. Furthermore, in terms of avoiding generalities when meeting with a VC firm, its important to tailor your pitches and avoid in-bulk communication. These venture capitalists have the funding to carry your company through to its last stages before going public, so understand the lifeline which these investors can provide and work to strengthen a bond with them, rather than a dependency.. Be proactive. Use the stakes of a VC partner meeting to get to know every facet of your company. Do your research on the firms you are propositioning to. The National Venture Capital Association website is especially useful for this. It offers general information on venture capital and advice in a ...

The aura of invincibility that has long protected venture capitalists-along with their generally keen intellect, their deep-pocketed firms and their attorneys-has been dissipating over the last few years. The latest suit may mostly serve to pop this already deflating bubble.. No one expected this situation to go as far as it has, but its sort of part of the Eliot Spitzer effect, observes Paul Kedrosky, who teaches business and entrepreneurship at the University of California at San Diego. Theres a lot more sympathy for entrepreneurs than there might have been a couple of years ago. People are more willing to take their chances that a jury might sympathize with a founder who has been wronged by an investor or a board member.. Litigants may be emboldened by the recent settlement of a similar suit that made harsh allegations against venture capitalists.

We document new facts on the evolution of founder-CEO compensation in venture capital-backed startups. Having a tangible product (product market fit) is a fundamental milestone in CEOs compensation, marking the point where liquid cash compensation increases significantly-well before an IPO or acquisition. Product market fit also coincides with key human capital in the startup becoming more replaceable. Although increases in cash compensation over the firm lifecycle improves the attractiveness of entrepreneurship relative to a contract with flat pay, we find that low cash compensation in the early years can still deter entrepreneurial entry ...

Late last year, it closed its Series C financing for an undisclosed amount, with the round led by venture capital firm Sequoia Capital China and Shunwei, a fund co-founded by Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi. Yet, canvassing for funds was hardly easy at the beginning. In 2008, he had nothing more than the initial $55,000 after knocking on the doors of more than 20 government agencies, private companies and individual investors.

Thanks to the central role the government has played in early-stage investment, its infrastructure has become a useful resource for private sector entities seeking to establish themselves in the domestic market. One of the more interesting questions in the PE field is the extent to which foreign players will be able to gain traction in the Kingdom.. A small number of international firms have achieved some success in the local market, such as the US-based Carlyle Groups investment and subsequent exit from the General Lighting Company in 2014. Other global brands have worked with regional players to take part in the domestic market, such as the cooperation of Dubais Abraaj Group with TPG Invest to secure a stake in Saudi Arabias fast food chain Kudu in April 2015. While other global players will also be seeking out investment opportunities, in this environment local knowledge remains essential to the successful execution of PE transactions.. Given Saudi Arabias special status within the world ...

Although buyout firms generally had different aims and methods, they were often lumped in with the corporate raiders who came on the scene in the 1980s. The raiders were best known for hostile bids-takeover attempts that were opposed by management. By contrast, private equity firms generally attempted to strike deals with boards and CEOs, though in many cases in the 1980s they allied with managements that were already under pressure from raiders. But both groups bought companies through leveraged buyouts; both relied heavily on junk bond financing; and under both types of owners in many cases major assets were sold, costs were slashed and employees were laid off. Hence, in the public mind, they were lumped together.[30] Management of many large publicly traded corporations reacted negatively to the threat of potential hostile takeover or corporate raid and pursued drastic defensive measures including poison pills, golden parachutes and increasing debt levels on the companys balance sheet. ...

When Leroy Ohlsen was a chemistry major at the University of Washington, he was fascinated with the transformation of chemical energy to electricity through the use of a catalyst. He was aware of scientific efforts already being applied to this general area, but received some critical advice from one of his professors - find a material on which to base your fuel cell that is well understood, rather than creating a new material. He realized that in order to significantly improve the potential efficiency of fuel cells, the energy production would need to dramatically increase beyond the capacity of the current generation of fuel cells. Ohlsen decided to see if it were possible to develop a fuel cell based on silicon, the same substance used by the semiconductor industry to manufacturer microprocessors and other chips ...

This paper mainly focuses on finding optimal strategies for the development of microfinance in Korea and on predicting the impact of microfinance in the future. First, this paper reviews and assesses the impact of microfinance in Korea. I suggested that recent phenomena of income polarization and credit rationing in the financial market are evidence that microfinance is needed in Korea. Although the Korean economy has made great strides, the difference in the income between the poor and the rich has gotten much greater. The foreign currency crisis in 1997 deepened income polarization and the impact is continuing. Banks choose to ration credit instead of increasing interest rate (when there was an excess demand for loans) which would lead adverse selection and moral hazards. The poor are in an inferior position when it comes to getting funds when credit ration happens because they cannot offer collateral and they need money urgently. This paper analyzes the factors which impact up on the survival ...
By Tommy Wilkes LONDON (Reuters) - Some of Europes biggest venture capital firms are buying into sales of new virtual coins or asking their investors to give them the freedom to do so, in a sign of mainstream investor backing for the booming but controversial crowd-funding tool. Germanys HV Holtzbrinck Ventures, which has more than 1 billion euros ($1.23 billion) under management, is talking to its investors about changing the terms of its next fund so it can buy tokens directly, Jan Miczaika, a partner at the firm, told Reuters. Lakestar, the Zurich-based firm run by Klaus Hommels, has made at least four investments in crypto and blockchain-related businesses since early 2017, among them ShapeShift, an exchange, and Blockchain, a wallet provider, and it is preparing to invest in a combination of coin and equity stakes in more.
In a typical joint venture, two or more businesses agree to contribute capital and resources for a common project. Most often, that project produces something that earns revenue. For example, in the oil industry, developers, drilling companies and service providers could agree to form a joint venture to drill an oil well. If the oil well is successful, those parties split the profit based on the value of their respective contributions to the joint venture. Most often, especially among sophisticated corporations, the joint venture is governed by a joint venture agreement. The agreement delineates specifics - how much each party will contribute and how the proceeds, if any, will be divided. One important U.S. federal tax consideration is that some joint ventures are not considered a taxable entity. This is specifically the case for joint ventures set up to merely share expenses, like a research and development joint venture. This means the joint venture does not have to obtain a Federal Employment
There are several reasons. It has greatly expanded the scope of investor participation. It may be difficult to convince a qualified institutional investor to bet on a venture capital investment. Therefore, by allowing non-qualified individuals to invest as well, this opens the door for a company in terms of successful financing. In addition, many companies and their institutional investors have different visions for the future, such as differences in how companies should develop and what markets they should focus on, which may create many problems in the future. This is a great way to connect and interact with users. First, Reg A+ products essentially require companies to have robust, well-thought-out value propositions that can actually be delivered to anyone. This is no longer to convince people that a particular business model or a particular function can create a 10x return; rather, to show people that their products meet the real needs of people's lives. This means that Reg A+ ...
Microfinance is the practice of providing loans and other financial services (such as savings accounts or insurance) to poor individuals (largely) in the developing world. Assessing the impact of microfinance charities is difficult, partly because microfinance is commonly portrayed in misleading ways. (See also our discussion of 6 myths of microfinance.)

Venture capital is a networks business - from networks of founders to the web of investors and angels and gossamer threads of potential customers, talent and service providers. Its a topic that Casey Caruso has thought a lot about. In a research project at Stanford, she looked at a slightly different form of network density: using convolution neural network (CNN) models to evaluate investment decisions, working with a group of three other authors to analyze how to optimize VC using algorithms.
