Abstract

New Technology Business Firms are known to be volatile dynamic organizations whose innovations are subject to short life cycles and product imitability. Venture capitalist firms who allocate funds to these start-ups need to evaluate multiple facets associated with the individual firm’s internal and external characteristics, as well as, its own unique objectives and goals. This study applies a multicriteria decision making model to the identification for venture capital firms of potential New Technology Business Firms who are requesting capital infusions.
