Available data describe the individual investments the venture capital (VC) funds made from 1989 to 2006 in small, primarily minority-owned businesses. They include annual cash flows measuring both dollar amounts invested and returned. Returns on realized investments are distinguished from returns on partially realized and unrealized investments. Also collected were traits of the VC funds themselves, including their funding sources, traits of general partners, types of involvement with portfolio companies, means used to generate deals, and others. Traits of the individual portfolio firms, in addition to cash flows, include industry, location, and minority-owner indicator variable.
