Abstract
Corporate venture capital (CVC) involves established corporations engaging in the venture capital community and purchasing minority stakes in startup companies. The purpose of CVC programs is generally strategic in nature, often focused on supporting the established corporation’s innovation efforts. While existing work consider the benefits of CVC programs, much less work has focused on the antecedents of program adoption or hindrances to their effective use. In this dissertation, I ask the broad question of what impacts when a firm will adopt and/or be able to utilize a CVC program. Taken together the dissertation provides novel insights into which firms launch a CVC program, when it is more likely that any CVC will be observed making an investment and what attributes make a specific investor more likely to be selected to participate in the investment round.
