The paper assesses the impact of the publicly-backed funds created to enable new and high-tech companies to obtain VC (venture capital) to meet their funding requirements. It describes the main approaches used to perform an evaluation of this type and an application related to the experience of the United Kingdom. The analyses are based on a sample of six hundred and fifty companies financed by public and private VC funds in the United Kingdom in the 1998-2007 period.
