While venture capital (VC) is of paramount importance for the development of young high potential companies, and thus also economic growth, the supply of venture capital is highly concentrated in only a few clusters in many countries. In consequence, it is essential to understand the role of spatial proximity between venture capitalists and new ventures in VC financing relationships. However, especially for continental European countries, there is still a huge lack of knowledge in this regard. Hence, this thesis aims to contribute to fill this research gap.
