HETFA – Compleo (2011): Who likes venture capital? Whom does venture capital like? ISSN 2062-3798

In this study, we are seeking to answer two questions. First, among Hungarian micro and small entreprises, which ones are able to attract the attention of venture capital; second, what type of owners and companies are willing to accept the idea of being financed by venture capital. On the one hand, companies either with multiple owners, a younger owner or entreprises of the manufacturing (non-service and non-agriculture) sector meet the investment criteria examined by this study. On the other hand, larger and faster-growing companies, start-ups and mature enterprises and the ones with a higher educated owner, are more prone to accept venture capital.
