Regulation of Venture Capital in the EU and East and West Africa: Impacts and Possibilities

Regulation of Venture Capital in the EU and East and West Africa: Impacts and Possibilities This article provides a discussion of venture capital regulation in Africa and Europe. It is based on a mixed-methods study of three representative cases across two geopolitical entities. The cases are Germany, Kenya and Nigeria. The article notes the lacuna in scholarly circles on the African continent with respect to venture capital and therefore lays the platform for robust engagement with the subject. Using analysis from Germany, it observes that lessons can be drawn on how effective institutions may not be a hindrance to capital but serve to continue to attract. With strong correlations between capital and investor protection as well as capital and taxation levels, a case is made for better institutions even in Eastern and West Africa. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png African Journal of International and Comparative Law Edinburgh University Press

Abstract

This article provides a discussion of venture capital regulation in Africa and Europe. It is based on a mixed-methods study of three representative cases across two geopolitical entities. The cases are Germany, Kenya and Nigeria. The article notes the lacuna in scholarly circles on the African continent with respect to venture capital and therefore lays the platform for robust engagement with the subject. Using analysis from Germany, it observes that lessons can be drawn on how effective institutions may not be a hindrance to capital but serve to continue to attract. With strong correlations between capital and investor protection as well as capital and taxation levels, a case is made for better institutions even in Eastern and West Africa.
