ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
I am indebted to a large number of people without whom the completion of this research and the resulting book would have been impossible. I would therefore like to thank:
My supervisor Colin Mason, whose enthusiasm, advice, support and patience during the course of my undergraduate dissertation and PhD were invaluable.
The ESRC, for its financial support throughout the course of my studentship.
All venture capital fund managers, corporate executives and small firm managers who agreed to participate in the research. I hope that my findings have been of use to them and their organisations and go some way to repaying them for their time and information.
Everyone who has given me advice and guidance during the course of the research. In particular, I am grateful to William Bygrave, Kevin Caley, Richard Harrison, Ian MacMillan and Hollister Sykes for their ideas in the early days, to Maurice Anslow for a steady stream of up-to-date information on the venture capital industry, and to Gordon Murray, for numerous suggestions during the course of the research.
My parents, for their endless encouragement and support in everything I do, and Nick, for being my best mate and helping me to see this through. Good luck in your own PhD!
Lauren. Thank you for your love and support at all times. I wouldn’t have made it without you.
Finally, I would like to thank Taylor & Francis and MCB University Press, publishers of the journals Entrepreneurship and Regional Development and International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research respectively, for granting permission for material previously published in the above journals to be reproduced in this book.
