In face of unknown risks and fleeting market opportunities, start-up enterprises will inevitably suffer the “Liabilities of Newness” due to lack of resources, etc. Owing to resources advantages in terms of funds, experience, expertise and the relationship with suppliers and cooperative partners, etc., venture capital investment institutions naturally fit with such enterprises and become a force to be reckoned with in promoting listing of start-ups. At present, Enterprises’ innovation and entrepreneurship activities are inseparable from the support of funds. As a unique financing method for entrepreneurial enterprises, venture capital not only provides a rare financing channel for start-ups, but also plays an important role in their innovation. This article discusses the relationship between venture capital and enterprises’ innovation and entrepreneurship activities, providing a reference for venture capital and enterprises’ innovation activities.
