It is a great pleasure to announce that China Finance Review International is dedicating a special issue “Venture Capital and Green Finance for Sustainable Development”. Countries face the pressures of technological advances and climate change. Venture capital and green funds are becoming important pillars of finance to spur economic recovery and sustainable growth. However, there are hurdles of information gap in valuing technology startups, and lacking liquidity for early investment to exit. This calls for new research explorations on these hot topics, both theoretical and empirical. We invite innovative papers on the theme of this special issue, including but not limited to the following aspects: 


  • Equity and debt financing for technology startups 
  • International comparisons of venture capital and green finance 
  • Green investments and carbon-trades 
  • The role of finance in achieving sustainable development 
  • Comparison of valuation methods of technology startups versus traditional firms  
  • Linkage of performance between pre-IPO private investments and post-IPO stock market  


Manuscript Submission Information 

The special issue is expected to be published in the middle of 2023. All submissions will undergo the same strict double blind peer review process that is generally applied for the journal. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted).
