|Description:||VICO final conference "Entrepreneurial finance: the real impact"|
|Location:||Stresa (Hotel La Palma) and Milan (Politecnico di Milano), Italy|
|Subject:||The VICO project (Financing Entrepreneurial Ventures in Europe: impact on innovation, employment growth, and competitiveness) is funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Commission within the theme "The role of finance in growth, employment and competitiveness in Europe" This conference aims towards broadening our understanding of the contribution of early stage financing obtained from different sources, to the creation, development and success of entrepreneurial ventures. In particular, we aim to collect and discuss theoretical and empirical studies on the relationship between the type of finance (i.e. equity capital, debt, mezzanine, etc.) received by entrepreneurial ventures from different types of investors (i.e. domestic and international independent venture capital (VC) investors, corporate and bank controlled VC investors, Governmental VC investors, university seed funds, business angels, banks, etc.) and the performance of these firms in terms of investments, innovation, productivity, sales, and employment growth. Moreover, the relationship between fund providers and VC, and between VC and entrepreneurial ventures, may influence the "real" impact of VC investments on the performance of investee firms. Hence emphasis will be placed on the role played by the ownership structure and corporate governance in both VC organisations and entrepreneurial firms. Furthermore, there will be considerable focus on the role played by governments to solve inefficiency in the financing of entrepreneurial ventures, and their interaction with private finance. Finally, changes triggered by the global crisis will receive special consideration. [gem╠_╠┘ den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]|
