Abstract
The purpose of this study is to describe and compare the corporate governance strategies of Swedish private and governmental VC firms. This study uses a qualitative abductive method and conducts five case studies. The authors formulizes a framework based upon Beuselinck et al. (2007). The empirical data comes from five interviews conducted with investment managers from two private and three governmental VC firms. The authors find that even if private and governmental have similar strategies, some differences could be found. Private VCs seem to work closer to the investments in a more tailored manner. The authors also construct a model that can be used to compare, evaluate and formulize corporate governance strategies.
