Effect of General Uncertainty on Venture-Capital Investments: A Cross-Country Study
AbstractUsing panel data for 19 OECD countries covering the period 1986-1995, we find effect of general economic uncertainty on venture-capital investments to be significantly negative. The more irreversible late-stage venture-capital investments are much more adversely affected by such uncertainty than earlystage investments.
