Abstract

The existence of a certification role for venture capitalist involvement at IPO has been extensively studied in the US market. These studies, however, have barely scratched the surface of establishing the constituents of any certification benefit of venture capitalist involvement with their investee companies at IPO. This paper outlines a model that could be used to investigate the key contributors to any certification role.

Keywords: venture capital, certification
