There is a lack of venture capital (VC) in Germany, especially in the growth phase of newly founded companies. As a result, the necessary capital to establish successful companies from innovative business models is lacking. In view of the international competition between technology locations, this lack weakens the innovative power of the European economy and hinders sustainable growth. The new study "Fuel Venture Capital: How we fuel innovation and growth" by Roland Berger, the Internet Economy Foundation (IE.F) and the Bundesverband Deutscher Kapitalbeteiligungsgesellschaften e.V. (Association of German Private Equity Firms). (BVK) analyses existing investment barriers to venture capital and explains how these can be overcome.
