Corporate Venture Capital: Bridging the Equity Gap in the Small Business Sector

By Kevin McNally | Go to book overview

by the UK’s growing band of microbreweries. Having thoroughly enjoyed this research, not least because of the subject matter, but also because of the exposure it allowed me both to issues of small firm growth and to the science of methodological technique, I began to research the topic of small firm financing and inter-firm cooperation more thoroughly. It subsequently became clear that our knowledge both of the so called ‘equity gap’ for small companies and of the nature of specific forms of collaboration between large and small firms was incomplete, and that a study of corporate venture capital investment, or corporate venturing, grounded in these two areas of discussion would be of use not only to geographers, but also to academics and practitioners from a wide range of disciplines. I hope that the results of my efforts to this end, which extend far beyond the investigation of spatial patterns that might be expected from a ‘geographer’, will command the attention of the broad audience that I believe this subject matter deserves.
