Abstract
The main findings of this study are that the likelihood of achieving a successful exit increases if the investing firm is private and if the geographical distance between investing firm and investee is limited. Furthermore, it is possible to conclude that the Swedish Venture Capital industry share several features with international counterparts, although the importance of the IPO for the overall funding of the industry is negligible. Instead the Swedish Venture Capital industry has been and will likely continue to be driven by governmental intervention
