Abstract

We investigate the effect of public (PUVC) and private (PRVC) venture capital funds on the sales growth of 6513 European New Technology-Based Firms (NTBFs) during the period from 1992 to 2009. Our results show that PUVC-backed NTBFs underperform with respect to PRVC-backed ones and do not grow more than non–venture capital-backed companies. The impact of PUVC is still not statistically significant (even though it is positive) when PUVC funds target young NTBFs. The only notable exception suggesting a positive and statistically significant impact for PUVCs is when PUVC funds cofinance with PRVC funds, and both target young firms.
