Venture Capital as a Mechanism for Knowledge Governance: New Markets and Innovation-Led Economic Growth
AbstractVenture capitalism can be understood as a new mechanism for the governance of technological knowledge that is the result of a system dynamics where a variety of complementary and localized innovations introduced by heterogeneous agents aligned and converged towards a collective platform. The new mechanism has improved the governance of technological knowledge within economic systems, through the combination of new science based start-up and new, dedicated financial markets specialized in the transactions of knowledge intensive property rights. The new, dedicated financial markets seem able to combine the advantages in screening and sorting radical innovations of the polyarchic decision-making with the advantages stemming from the direct participation to the profits of new outperforming science-based start-up that are characteristics of the equity provision of finance to innovation,typical of the corporate model.
