  • Gomes Santana Félix, Elisabete


In this work it was intended to carry through an analysis of the European venture capital market in the last eight years. Also it was done a summary of the venture capital industry history, carrying through a comparison between U.S.A. and Europe. In the European venture capital market analysis it was pointed out aspects about the investment totals, fundraising, investors types and investments types. Among others conclusions, it was found that the banks and pension funds are the main suppliers of capital, that it is a market traditionally domestic and that, in totals invested, the buyout investments are the ones that possess greater representation, but when analyzed the numbers of realized investments it is the expansion investment that predominate.
