Financing of start-ups in Flanders: determinants of the start-up capital and the use of bootstrap financing.

New start-ups lack prior history or lack reputation and are associated with a high failure risk. Nevertheless, a future entrepeneur needs to find a sufficient amout of capital in order to be able to start a new venture. The aim of this study is to identify the determinants of both the initial start-up capital as well as the use of bootstrap financing in newly founded ventures. Moreover, this study will investigate the impact of bootstrap financing on the new venture's performance.
