Recent years have witnessed massive development in both the venture capital market and in academic research relating to this market. The aims of this timely collection are to identify leading contributions to this developing area from the past two decades; to reflect the growing multi-disciplinarity of research on venture capital; and to highlight the need to recognize international differences in venture capital markets.

The editors have written an authoritative overview, signaling where venture capital research has come and where it is going. This is a vital collection of writings for those wanting to become familiar with venture capital research.
‘. . . provides an interesting insight into the field of venture capital research. . . a valuable collection of papers. . . This collection represents a major, and necessary, retrospective overview of US and US-inspired venture capital research from the standpoint of the year 2000 peak in the venture capital market.’
– Richard Harrison, International Small Business Journal

‘The editors are well placed, given their own substantial work on the subject, to produce an authoritative collection of articles on venture capital. They have assembled all of the influential articles on venture capital in an accessible and well structured set of three volumes. Quite simply, I doubt whether this collection of articles could be bettered in either structure or content – it is a must read/purchase for anybody interested in the subject of venture capital.’
– Kevin Keasey, University of Leeds, UK

‘This volume provides a comprehensive and very useful compilation of academic research on venture capital. As such, it is a great resource for researchers interested in venture capital.’
– Steven N. Kaplan, University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, US
