IESE, a graduate business school based in Barcelona, has announced the 2013 version of its ranking of country attractiveness for venture capital and private equity and Poland leads the way among CEE countries. Poland, which came in 28th overall, was followed by the Czech Republic (35), Russia (40), Hungary (42) Lithuania (43), Slovakia (44), Slovenia (45), Estonia (51), Bulgaria (53), Latvia (60), Romania (62), Croatia (65), Ukraine (69), Bosnia-Herzegovina (73), Macedonia (80), Serbia (82), Montenegro (86), Belarus (87), Moldova (98), and Albania (108). All told, 118 countries were included in the list. US, Canada, UK, Japan and Singapore are the top five countries in the ranking.
This list, which has been released bi-annually since 2006, is based on how investors in VC/PE funds view various countries. Investors take into account economic activity (GDP, inflation, and unemployment rate), the size and liquidity of capital markets, taxation, investor protection and corporate governance, the human and social environment (human capital, labor market policies, and crime), and entrepreneurial culture and opportunities (including innovation capacity, the ease of doing business, and the development of high-tech industries). The authors of the rankings say that they hope to provide a broad picture of how various countries stand in relation to one another in terms of VC/PE attractiveness.
