Abstract and Keywords
How are new industries financed? Specifically, for industries pioneered by entrepreneurial firms, where do entrepreneurs acquire the initial resources to start and grow their firms? This article reviews the literature on the role of finance in the emergence of new industries. It begins with a brief review of the central problems of finance of the high-risk, high-growth ventures that often play an important role during the emergence of new industries. It then presents several mini-case studies on new industries. It explores the ways that public markets and, more recently, venture capital limited partnerships have altered the industry emergence process, and thereby evaluates the literature's view of the role of these institutional arrangements.
