AbstractThe objective of this paper is non-financial aspects of private equity and venture capital investments and their impact on companies. Private equity funds providing capital to companies significantly increase their growth opportunities. The paper presents author’s own studies of the private equity investment influence for the enterprise activity. Comparing venture-backed firms and others, it shows that venture-backed companies patent more than other firms and their ideas are higher technological and economic values. The vast majority of polish managers believe their company would not have existed or would have grown less rapidly without venture capital. Respondents also believe that venture capital funding encouraged employment, investment, R&D (research and development) spending, and export. An important source of empirical data is performed by author’s own surveys and interviews with representatives of shareholding companies, as well as private equity fund managers. The period of this research is between 1998 and 2012. The study used several research methods: a descriptive method, the method of comparative analysis, the method of critical analysis, and synthesis applications.
