Corporate Venture Capital and Its Contribution to Intermediate-Goods Firms in South Korea

Abstract: Set by government, corporate, financial, and individual sources, venture capitals(VCs) in South Korea adapted themselves to a new and uncertain VC market through stand-alone as well as syndicated investments. This study raises questions about whether the various financial sources differentially preferred and contributed to their portfolio firms even during the market boom in 2000. Even though there was no single capital source to show better performance, only corporate VCs are found not only to prefer, but also to contribute to intermediate-goods firms. This result can be based on the unique role of corporate VCs to make use of vertical value chain linkage for their investment.
