Crowdfunding impact on traditional distribution structures
Böhm, Jan ; Zaoral, Ondřej (advisor) ; Šlerka, Josef (referee)
This diploma thesis aims to discover, how crowdfunding influences traditional distributional structures. There are many possibilities, how to approach the problem. I have decided to compare the role of the intermediary in different forms of financing. This means, that by "distributional structures", I understand forms of financing. I compare five forms of financing, that altogether define all important kinds of financial transactions between two subjects: The bilateral model, Crowdfunding, Venture Capital, Market and Banks. As a tool for comparing all the forms, I created "Intermediate chain", that describes the way from one demanding subject, who realises his needs, through finding offering subject, to making and fulfiling a contract. I use the intermediate chain, that analyses this way, to describe all the forms of financing. The outcome of this process is a very detailed description. I describe all the models to verify, how crowdfunding takes over the function of other models. The theoretical frame of the analysis is disintermediation. Only by putting the analysis into this theoretical frame, the whole thesis becomes reasonable: The point is not to describe all the models, how people trade with each other. By the question about the influence of crowdfunding on traditional distributional structures, I...

Private Equity funds and their performance in the post-crisis period
Koníř, Štěpán ; Krištoufek, Ladislav (advisor) ; Kučera, Adam (referee)
The work covers the topic of private equity funds performance and attempt to identify the impact of macroeconomic conditions on the entire industry. The recent central banks' actions put a question about the impact of changes in interest rates on the private equity funds performance. With the sample of 100 observations provided by Cambridge Associates, we identified the significant negative effect of prevailing low interest rates on the growth of private equity funds performance. We further attempt to answer the question, whether private equity funds operating in post-crisis years has on average higher growth rate, however, we could not provide the answer as we failed to reject the null, neutral effect hypothesis. Additionally, with a sample of 3092 observations provided by Bloomberg, we found that the effect of cheap debt has increased on average in the postcrisis period, predicting that the private equity performance can suffer once the interest rates rises enough.

Main goalof the thesis is to analyze the developmnet of of the Israeli startup environment, facts and the institutions that influence it. The thesis furthermore compares the development of the startup ecosystem in Israel and the USA during the period mentioned above. To achieve these goals the method of analysis has been chosen, especially causal, cestoral and system analysis. The thesis shows that the mains causes of the dynamic development of the startup ecosystem in Israel is in particular the government initiative together with the creation of the Office of the Chief Scientist, constantly rising spending on R&D and the associated support for venture capital funds. In comparison with the US, in Israel, the government sector plays a significant role in all types of support, whether financial or institutional, thus motivating foreign investors to enter the Israeli financial market. The success of the Israeli state lies also in its historical events, cultural habits and the features of the population. The main benefit of the thesis, except the analysis of the Israeli startup environment and its comparison with the US is a comprehensive analysis of the insignificant facts that influenced its current development.

The effect of introduction of Cloud Computing: The case of Venture Capital
Šomvársky, Jan ; Mejstřík, Michal (advisor) ; Čech, František (referee)
The thesis aims to examine the impact of introduction of Cloud Computing on Venture Capital (VC) financing in the United States. In the first part we review features of Cloud Computing and their impact on startup costs in context of VC. In this thesis we consider Amazon Web Services (AWS), introduced in 2006, a pioneer of widely accessible Cloud Computing. In the second part we quantify the cost reduction associated with utilization of AWS against owning IT infrastructure. Results show 529 fold decrease in startup costs in 3- month time frame. In the third part we analyze the impact of introduction of AWS on seed and later-stage investments in context of selected macroeconomic and technological factors. We perform analysis on a comprehensive dataset from National Venture Capital Association using Autoregressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) model to account for a change in lagged values of dependent and independent variables. Main finding of our analysis suggests that seed investments are significantly influenced by the introduction of AWS and subsequent drop in startup costs. Specifically, the decline in cost of startup induced 29.67% increase in seed investments. Further findings indicate insignificant relationship between seed investments and macroeconomic factors. Moreover, according to our results,...
