    The growth of European venture capital in recent years has been dramatic, but it faces serious issues in the 1990s, such as industry growth rates, competition, rates of return and the Single European Market itself. Roure, Keeley and van der Heyden studied 34 major European venture capital firms to get views which would assist strategists and public policy makers. The authors also look ahead in the 1990s. Among the interesting results are further growth in venture capital, with strong financial support from pension funds and life assurance companies, greater competition and lower returns among venture capital firms, and a shift of investment away from early-stage firms to more fully established ones.
