It is positively expected that venture capitals play an important role of supporting the process. Nevertheless, there is a scant of research efforts to analyze empirical data for understanding cross-correlations between investment of venture capital and new venture foundation. To fill the gap, this study investigated sets of time-series data from 1998 to 2014 in the context of South Korean economy. The results reveal that venture capitals have contributed significantly to the quantitative increase of venture firms. In addition, the findings show that the creation of new venture fails to yield a direct impact on resolving young unemployment problems in short term.
