Abstract: This paper has been an attempt to investigate the reasons underlying the lack of success in obtaining the venture capital financing. We did so from the demand perspective using a sample of 63 Portuguese nascent entrepreneurs that were not successful when, during the pre start-up phase of their innovative firms, they attempted to obtain VC financing. The main reasons cited for not obtaining VC financing were: 1) small size of the VC market in Portugal; 2) limited public policies to support VC participation; 3) lack of interest of the VCs in pre start-up phase investments; 4) unwillingness of VC suppliers to provide small amounts of capital.
