A Vision for Venture Capital: Realizing the Promise of Global Venture Capital and Private Equity
A Vision for Venture Capital chronicles a distinguished career on the frontiers of international finance during the past half-century. Peter Brooke has been called "the Johnny Appleseed of venture capital" for his role in the industry's spectacular growth-- from a small base in the Northeastern United States in the 1960s, to today's highly visible role in economies all over the world. The key to Brooke's success--and his lasting legacy--is his vision for the industry as an essential element of economic growth and development. At a time when some believe that venture capital's best days are behind it, and private equity has come under harsh criticism in the United States and elsewhere, A Vision for Venture Capital offers a fresh look at why the industry exists and how it can fulfill its potential in the twenty-first century.
