Venture Capital

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The financing of entrepreneurship, particularly Venture Capital finance, is my primary research topic. Historically, much of my work had a policy focus (see the policy papers below). I have one published paper and one unpublished paper (despite numerious submissions) in examining venture capital, as well as two current research projects.
