Human Capital and the Internationalisation of Venture Capital Firms

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

We examine the neglected area of internationalisation by VCs. Using a representative sample of 195 VCs, we show that the decision of a European VC firm to invest internationally is driven by its human resources. Having more VC executives in general and more VC executives with previous international experience in specific, results in a higher probability of investing internationally. In contrast, more VC executives with experience in the VC industry or with an engineering background lead to a higher probability of remaining domestic.
