  • Hortense Tarrade


In this chapter, the decision to invest at a distance is examined from two opposite perspectives. First, the potential rationales behind a VC firm’s decision to invest in international ventures are discussed based on managerial finance and internationalization literature. Second, the costs associated with investing at a distance are analyzed using agency theory. The third subsection concludes and highlights the identified research gaps and contribution of the thesis.
