The underlying concept of this research is explorative. A structured questionnaire was designed and translated into appropriate languages (Chinese and English) to figure out the pure logic of the questions. The online questionnaires were sent to the venture capitalists of both countries (selected from the official entities) which are followed up by the interview (face to face and electronic).
It is found that venture capitalists of both countries act almost same while evaluating the individual criteria (entrepreneur’s personality and experience) and corporate criteria (Product and Market characteristics). But in terms of institutional or environmental criteria, Pakistani VCs are more demanding then Chinese VCs due to the lake of support from the financial and legal institutions.
Further, Pakistani VCs attracted by the environmental level risk like country and geographical risk whereas Chinese VCs concentrates on the socio-culture and trade risk. While the VCs of both countries react in the same way to the venture and team level risk.
Investment is a multi-stage process. Therefore the researchers are encouraged to enhance the investment criteria along with the stages of investment (deal-origination, deal-structuring, and due-diligence). The sample size can be enlarged to enhance the statistical background of the study
