Routledge (Taylor & Francis Group) www.routledge.com/9780367331610
This unique study reviews the entire investment process from sourcing deals to exiting deals specifically contrasting Europe and the US in terms of the factors pertaining to the investment process and the impact on the performance gap between European and US VC funds. Factors can be structural in terms of the size, stage and sector focus of VC firms, operational in terms of the investment practices of VC firms or pertaining to the wider environments in which the firms operate. If European VC firms adopt more of the best practices of US VC firms, then performance of European VC could be further improved.
