Venture capital

The data presented in this section come from Thomson Reuters and are available as of 1996. The development of the venture capital indicators is based on work conducted in the United States (e.g. Gompers and Lerner, 2004) and at the OECD (e.g. Davis, Gonnard and Sicari, 2008). Venture capital includes all private equity provided by investors (venture capital investment funds, angel investors and others) to selected businesses not listed on the stock exchange that present high-risk projects. In exchange for the funds and expertise they provide to these businesses, investors obtain financial securities (stocks and bonds) that they will dispose of, if applicable, a few years later when these businesses are sold or get listed on the stock exchange.
