Relevant Theories for the Analysis of Spatial Proximity in Venture Capital Financing

  • Marko Bender


To analyze the role of spatial proximity between the venture capitalist and the entrepreneurial team throughout the VC investment process, a plurality of theories will be used. The advantage of multiple theories is that critical relationships can be analyzed from different points of view, which are comparable to different searchlight positions to shed light on the research object. This approach allows the generation of more refined insights compared to an analysis which is based only on one specific theory.
