ABSTRACT
The article focuses on entry barriers that new venture capital companies (VCC) encounter. It states that VCCs often cooperate in areas not directly related to the economic return on investments, with VCCs often participating with other VCCs to spread risk or utilize their networks of expertise. It comments that an analysis of venture capital transactions over a five-year time period shows the interconnectedness of existing VCCs in the examined geographic market and evidence that local VCCs restrict access for new venture capital entrants.
