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...

Crowdfunding impact on traditional distribution structures
Böhm, Jan ; Zaoral, Ondřej (advisor) ; Šlerka, Josef (referee)
The main topic of this diploma thesis is the capital allocation. I focus on crowdfunding and study how the development of crowdfunding during the last years influenced options and effectiveness of the capital allocation. I compare crowdfunding with other distributional models. Under the term of "distributional models", I understand funding models, namely bilateral model, banks, stock markets and venture capital. I choose start-ups or arising projects as a medium of exploration. The hypothesis of this thesis is as follows: "Crowdfunding is better model for funding arising projects than venture capital, banks, stock market or bilateral model." To answer the main hypothesis, I analyze two supporting hypothesis. The first hypothesis studies the principle of crowdfunding. It says, that crowdfunding is able to recognize funding-worthy projects better than other models. I want to know, what makes crowdfunding an innovative concept, I study, how the new media manifest themself in the concept of crowdfunding. I analyze, how crowdfunding eliminates individual errors by using the "crowd". And above all, I study how each model addresses the role of an intermediary in the relation between surplus and scarce subjects. The second hypothesis observes, whether crowdfunding provides more money to the arising projects than...

Value drivers of startup projects relevant for venture capital investors in the Czech Republic and valuation methods
Habrnal, Marek ; Špička, Jindřich (advisor) ; Starý, Oldřich (referee) ; Špaček, Miroslav (referee)
The main objective was to create a normative model of determining the value of early stage for companies in the seed and start up stage. The model should be applicable to entrepreneurs and investors, taking into account the assessment of the value of qualitative factors. Another aim was to identify the significant factors affecting the value of early stage companies in the seed and start up stage, i.e. at a time when there are no or very little revenues. Based on a research among investors and other experts on the valuation of early stage companies and venture capital, the most significant factors were not only identified, but also determined by their weight. The quality of evaluating investment opportunities has a major impact on the profitability of the investor´s capital. Current knowledge of the key value drivers and the mechanisms of valuation can help businesses to set realistic expectations when trying to raise capital to finance the startup of the project. It is therefore necessary to provide a clear methodological framework applicable to both parties of investing. The actual research was divided into two phases - individual interviews with investors and questionnaires. It was confirmed that the most crucial factors are those associated with quality management and company founders.
Private Equity in Central and Eastern Europe
Jurek, Martin ; Sato, Alexej (advisor) ; Černohlávková, Eva (referee) ; Čižinská, Romana (referee)
Venture capital and private equity (VC/PE) funds in a global perspective belong to the largest nonbank medium, as well as long-term sources of capital. The main aim of this dissertation is to identify private equity specifics from a European perspective and assess its historic and current development within the context of the Central and Eastern European (CEE) region. In connection with that main aim, three hypotheses are defined: Hypothesis 1: The impact of the VC/PE investor on the functions of the financed company during the holding period has a positive effect on the performance of that company. Hypothesis 2: The impact of the VC/PE investor on the functions of the financed company during the holding period has a positive effect on internationalizing that company. Hypothesis 3: The increased international growth of the financed company during the holding period has a positive effect on company performance. Although private equity is not an unknown term in the CEE region, its fundamental terminology and use is not comprehensive. As a result, the first chapter defines and explains basic terms. For a better understanding of the private equity industry, its historical development, systemized division and classical models of private equity funds are further displayed. The second chapter introduces the theoretical background for the particular components applied in the empirical research. It describes fields of investor activity in financed companies and its corresponding effect on their performance and internationalization. Private equity is an integral part of financial markets and is thus influenced by related government programs and legislative changes. In this respect, the third chapter sets forth Czech state support, as well as taxation and legislative adjustments regarding private equity. An analysis is laid out in the final two chapters, the fourth analysing private equity in the CEE region (with specifics from a historical and a current perspective) and thoroughly examining fundraising, investment and divestment according to a scale of determinants. The fifth and last chapter concludes the dissertation by factor analysis confirmation and statistical testing of the above mentioned hypothesis. This dissertation's main contribution is in the results derived from a model describing the role of the VC/PE investor with regard to the performance and internationalization of financed companies, including the statistical testing of defined relationships. Further, it analyses outcome specifics in the VC/PE within the CEE region.
