AbstractWhile since long venture capital investors have been considered rational and unbiased investors, more recently scholars have challenged this view and shown that venture capitalists’ – like many other investors’ – actual behavior does not always align with assumptions of rationality. One particularly interesting stream of research has adopted the Behavioral Theory of the Firm to study venture capitalists’ strategic decision making. This chapter will review this nascent, yet promising, line of research.
