Abstract and Keywords

Venture capital has, in recent years become a substantial and growing area of academic research. It is still a comparatively young field and several of the fundamental questions raised by scholars working within it remain to be answered. The survey in this article aims to provide an overview of the current scholarly answers to several questions. In doing so it attempts as far as possible to cut through the jargon and hyperbole endemic to the subject and to provide convenient access to the main issues.

Keywords: venture capital, economic and finance, academic research, fund providers, capital investment, venture capital contracts
