Venture capitalists (VCs) are willing to fund technology-based firms, but they have difficulty in identifying attractive and beneficial proposals. To understand well how VC can help to diffuse tech- nological knowledge to the market place, it was explored in this paper how venture capital companies evaluate technological business proposals. The relations of these business proposals were examined in the selection process adopted by venture capitalists. The results show that the potential return on investment, personality characteristics, such as the ability of the entrepreneura and the characteristics of a team were the most important selection criteria.
Inwestorzy venture capital (VC) są skłonni do finansowania przedsiębiorstw opartych na tech- nologiach, ale często mają trudności z identyfikacją atrakcyjnych i korzystnych propozycji. W celu lepszego zrozumienia, jak inwestycje VC ułatwiają rozpowszechnianie wiedzy technologicznej na rynku, w niniejszym artykule zbadano kryteria oceny technologicznych propozycji biznesowych przez spółki podwyższonego ryzyka. Analizowano relacje propozycji biznesowych w kontekście selekcji dokonywanej przez inwestorów wysokiego ryzyka. Wyniki pokazują, że najważniejszymi kryteriami wyboru były potencjalny zwrot z inwestycji, cechy osobowości przedsiębiorcy oraz charakterystyka zespołu.
