Abstract

The paper attempts to empirically study the monitoring and value added activities practiced by Indian Venture Capitalists. A brief literature review of the monitoring activities in the context of developed countries has been presented leading to the development of a conceptual framework. Data on the monitoring and value addition activities of the venture capitalists was gathered through.

A questionnaire consisting of 30 statements using Likert Scale of 1 to 5 was developed to gather information on the monitoring and value addition activities of the Indian venture capitalists. The statements attempt to elicit the perceptions of the Chief Executives of 82 Indian Venture Capital firms on many critical issues such as strategic role, over monitoring, knowledge sharing and mentoring etc. An analysis of the perception based information led to the conclusion that the monitoring and value added activities in the Indian context are more or less similar to that of developed countries as evidenced in the literature review despite dissimilarities in content and scale. The paper concludes with a few suggestions and for further research in venture capital financing domain.
