International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 25, No. 1/2, 2003

Abstract: Taiwan stands out as an early success story in developing a venture capital (VC) industry. Domestic policy makers introduced VC in the early 1980s and today the island boasts a flourishing VC sector that is closely associated with the upgrading of the personal computer and integrated circuit industries. This paper describes the industry’s origins in the close connections to Silicon Valley built by overseas Chinese, and it analyses the resulting patterns of cross-regional collaboration between the VC industries in the USA and Taiwan.
