Sources of capital for innovative startup firms

This report seeks to contribute to the stream of empirical studies on sources of capital for innovative startups by studying young Swedish firms. The study has three major objectives: first, to examine how Swedish innovative startups are financed during their earliest stages of development; second, to identify possible determinants of external capitalization of such firms; and third, to analyze the perceptions of innovative Swedish entrepreneurs pertaining to funding from commercial debt providers, business angels and venture capitalists.
