About the Author

Edited by Hans Landstroem, Professor, Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship, Lund University, Sweden and Colin Mason, Professor of Entrepreneurship, Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow, UK


`This exciting second volume of cutting-edge research on venture capital takes up where volume one leaves off, bringing greater depth to topics covered in the first volume (such as angel investing) and adding new topics and insights. It poses interesting questions such as: "is venture capital in crisis? Are new models of early investing needed?", and offers carefully researched answers. Landstroem and Mason provide insightful commentary and skillfully pinpoint the contributions of a talented set of researchers. Both scholars and practitioners of venture capital will want to read this book.' -- Harry J. Sapienza, University of Minnesota, US
`The second volume of the Handbook of Research on Venture Capital provides an important guidepost for venture capital researchers. As Landstroem and Mason point out, the nature of venture capital has changed dramatically over the last ten years. The asset class as a whole has failed to return principal and the old model is under tremendous strain. The contributors nicely highlight many of these changes, especially how venture capital has scaled beyond the US. For those of us active in venture capital research, the chapters raise many interesting research questions that deserve further attention.' -- Andrew Zacharakis, Babson College, US
