There have long been problems which mean that entrepreneurial companies are not able to raise all the capital they need and that good companies are not getting funded. Therefore, governments in many countries have tried to solve these problems by taking on the role of venture capital investor to support entrepreneurial development and early stage investments. The environment where there is a lack of private equity financing has highlighted the need for public VC financing.

Currently, there is a growing search for capital (other than the financing mechanisms offered by the typical banking system) among entrepreneurial ventures. It would be valuable to understand the role of the government acting as a major venture capitalist supporting entrepreneurial businesses, with the aim to engender economic advantages.

In this special issue, we focus on the entrepreneurial management of VC financing to help small innovative businesses develop products and bring them to market. The issue brings together academics, practitioners, researchers, and aims to deliver a reference edition for all those interested in the entrepreneurial financing.
