NOTES


INTRODUCTION

Venture capital and later stage private equity is high risk capital directed towards businesses with prospects of rapid growth and/or high rates of returns. It is an investment not only of money, but also of skills and time. This publication presents information on both financial and non-financial contributions to venture capital and later stage private equity investments.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) undertook the first survey of venture capital for the period 1999-2000 and has since undertaken this survey annually with the financial support of the Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research.

The ABS has conducted all surveys with the advice and assistance of users of these statistics, industry bodies and data providers.
