Raising Venture Capital Finance in Europe Book Excerpt:

European private equity investment reached €47 billion in 2005, up 27% from 2004. Funds raised for private equity were €72 billion, up 250% on the previous year, both figures being all time highs. Raising Venture Capital Finance in Europe provides business owners, entrepreneurs and investors alike with a step-by-step approach to exploiting this market and funding new projects effectively. Written by Keith Arundale, an advisor and commentator on the European and US VC and private equity industry for over 20 years, the guide blends business experience with practical approaches to enable the reader to maximize the opportunities available. The book includes a series of real-life case studies from venture capitalists and entrepreneurs from around Europe, each with practical tips for successful venture capital finance raising. With forewords from Sir Paul Judge (Chairman, Enterprise Education Trust) and Patrick Sheehan (Chairman, Venture Capital Committee, European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association) the book begins with a brief introduction to the field, including an analysis of current trends and issues in the industry, and goes on to provide a detailed framework for an objective assessment of each business opportunity. The book looks at sources of finance and private equity, shows how to write a successful business plan, details the entire investment process, and considers the tax and legal issues involved. A particular feature of the book is that it looks at the topic from both sides - showing what the venture capitalist is looking for as well as detailing how an entrepreneur or business owner can make proposals attractive to those investors This means that the reader will be able to minimize time wasted on unnecessary activities and therefore develop investment approaches which are succinct, relevant, and give every chance of success.

Venture Capital Performance Book Excerpt:

European venture capital (VC) funds have historically underperformed their US counterparts. This has resulted in reduced investment into European VC by the traditional institutional investors. This book investigates the factors that give rise to the performance difference. It is based on the author’s research at the Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow which involved a qualitative study of some 64 VC firms in the UK, continental Europe and the US, supplemented by 40 interviews with other stakeholders, including limited partner investors, corporate venturers, entrepreneurs and advisors. Readers will gain an in-depth understanding of the various structural, operational and wider environmental factors that impact on the performance difference between UK/European and US VC funds. The study is unique in that it provides, for the first time, a holistic and extensive analysis of the entire investment process from sourcing deals to exiting deals specifically contrasting Europe and the US in terms of the variables pertaining to the investment process and the impact on the fund performance. Factors impacting on the performance differential are structural, resulting from characteristics of the funds themselves, operational such as the investment practices of the VC firms which manage the funds and environmental such as culture and attitude to risk and the wider ecosystem in which the funds operate. These factors are set out clearly for the reader. The characteristics of the better performing funds in Europe and the US are also investigated. The book is aimed at academics who are researching venture capital fund performance and investment practices and also at practitioners, advisors and policymakers who want to learn about best VC investment practices. Whilst the book is focused on European and US VC investing, the best practices are also pertinent for VC firms and funds setting up in other geographies, particularly in emerging markets. To this end, best practice guidelines based on the research are included.

Venture Capital in Europe Book Excerpt:

Europe s venture capital market is dwarfed by that of the USA, and Europe s employment performance continues to be disappointing. The two phenomena are closely connected. Small and medium sized businesses find it difficult both to get started and to grow into big companies. In a worst case scenario, European entrepreneurs are faced with skepticism and ignorance in the banking sector, an absence of stock options, unreasonable legal and bureaucratic obstacles, a high cost of labour, unhelpful government agencies and unsympathetic tax authorities. How in these circumstances is it possible to grow global companies in Europe? This Federal Trust Report investigates how this question might be answered. It sets forth the findings of an eminent and wide-ranging study group, which proceeded under the chairmanship of Sir Brian Corby. The report examines the extent of the current integration of Europe s capital markets and asks what measures are necessary to ensure a better provision of venture capital. The study: * Considers how the US has achieved its substantial concentration of capital and entrepreneurial activity during the last two decades; * Compares the fragmented stock markets and differentiated regulatory regimes of Europe with the coherent, Federal-level authorities of the USA; * Examines whether the comparative absence within the European Union of funded pensions that could provide exit opportunities for venture capitalists is a major weakness, and, if so, whether it can be rectified; * Examines the role of the EU institutions, and especially that of the European Investment Bank, which through the European Investment Fund (1994) and the European Technology Facility (1997) has enteredthe venture capital market.* Looks at the potential development of EASDAQ; * Examines the role of the media, universities and regional and local authorities in creating the right circumstances for the development of European venture capitalism. In reporting its findings, the study group proposes amendments EU legislation in the fields of pensions reform, financial services, accountancy, taxation and competition policy. The report also suggests how enhanced management expertise, and the establishment of specialist boutiques and innovatory banks could play a wider role in providing funds and in supporting enterprise.

Venture Capital in Europe Book Excerpt:

The purpose of this report is to provide an overview of the recent trends in the venture capital (VC) market in the European Union (EU). In particular, it investigates and documents the characteristics of VC transactions, venture capitalists and VC-backed firms in the context of EU small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). In recent years, the European Commission has devoted increasing attention to this area through relevant policy actions aiming to stimulate the adoption of different sources of external financing available to SMEs that face barriers to more traditional financing. In particular, the 2015 capital markets union (CMU) action plan included among its key objectives the financing of innovation, start-ups and non-listed companies, including by supporting new VC investments. Moreover, the new 2020 CMU action plan further incentivises the adoption of alternative sources of funding for SMEs.

The Evolution of Legal Business Forms in Europe and the United States

The Evolution of Legal Business Forms in Europe and the United States Book Excerpt:

The evolution of partnership forms is stimulated by powerful economic forces that can lead to widespread prosperity and wealth creation for a society. Given the importance of closely held firms in the United States and Europe, The Evolution of Legal Business Forms in Europe and the United States argues that partnership law should trouble itself less with historical and descriptive arguments about the legal rules and structure of the partnership form and focus much more on the new analytical apparatus of the economics of organizational form as well the fundamental economic learning that informs the debates on limited liability, partnership rules regarding management and control, conflict resolution and fiduciary duties. Introducing and extending the best available theories from law and economics, particularly those from the theory of the firm, This book?s analysis demonstrates that the patterns of European partnership law and its recent history are best understood from an economic and comparative law perspective. By examining the economic theories of the firm and the economics of organization choice, The Evolution of Legal Business Forms in Europe and the United States conceives partnership-type business forms as contractual entities. The key feature of the modern partnership form is that partners have significant flexibility and power to limit their liability, transfer all of their rights, and to freely exit the firm. Another key feature of partnership law is the insight that lawmakers should provide the rules and enforcement mechanisms to regulate the important relationships within the partnership. This book applies an efficiency test to determine which sets of default rules are likely to resolve the main problems in partnerships. Having identified partnership law with the economic theory of organization, The Evolution of Legal Business Forms in Europe and the United States then goes to argue that most of partnership law is directed at offering bundles of legal rules for different types of firms. Lawmakers should promote partnership rules that attract investors and can be expected to be efficient if they allow entrepreneurs to freely select the bundle of rules that best match their priorities. In a modern vision of partnership law, lawmakers promote economic welfare through creating non-mandatory rules that allow multiple businesses to switch to a favourable business form without significant costs. Jurisdictions plagued by falling incorporations and low levels of small and medium business activity, should abandon the mandatory and standardized framework and the `lock in? effect that it promotes, and focus on the mechanisms of legal evolution and rules that tend to mimic the market. This innovation work will have ramifications felt across European jurisdictions, and will be debated by a large audience of policymakers and academic lawyers involved in law reform. Moreover, the book will receive serious attention from students of law and economics, as well as practising lawyers involved in resolving complex issues of organizational law. Review (s) ?Vermeulen?s work makes a significant contribution to the dialogue between legal scholars and policy makers from Europe and the United States on the matter of business entity law reform. The volume is ambitious in scope, thoughtful in approach, and accurate in result. It shows a well-read and nuanced view of the recent American partnership law reform debates. He moves with assurance between different systems of law and analysis, and has a confident sense of what his diverse readers need to know to come to the ultimate discussion with a common sense of the issues and alternatives at hand. Vermeulen?s work should serve as a starting point for a robust discussion among scholars and policy makers.?
