Private Equity/Venture Capital Investments

  • Ewelina Sokołowska

Abstract

The sector of venture capital investments is assumed to date back to the year 1946, when Georges Doriot, R. Flanders, K. Comptone, M. Griswold and other partners founded the American Research and Development Corporation. Their goal was to invest in the stocks characterized by a low level of liquidity or in the securities of newly established companies (Swedroe and Kizer 2010).
