Title: Investor or Maecenas? – A study on the usage of venture capital within the Swedish film industry.

Author: Tobias Magnusson

Supervisors: Ahmad Ahmadi, Clas Gunnarsson

Purpose: The purpose with this thesis is to complement the research on procurement of capital within the Swedish film industry.

Methodology: The primarily research method that have been used to gather material is qualitative interviews, that has been performed with four individuals that are active in the Swedish film industry.

Theory: In order to create an adequate theoretical base, theories regarding investments and cultural entrepreneurship are presented.

Empirics: In this chapter the results of the interviews are presented, sorted in several subcategories. The material is thereafter analyzed and discussed in the following chapter, with the theoretical base in mind.

Conclusion: The usage of venture capital within the Swedish film industry is relatively low today. Non-monetary values are the primary reason to invest in the Swedish film industry today. A significant risk diversification, together with knowledge dispersion needs to be made in order to make the Swedish film industry more attractive to investors. If these changes will be made, there is a possibility that the industry’s self image will change.

Keywords: Film, financing, venture capital, cultural entrepreneurship, Swedish film industry

Titel: Investerare eller mecenat? – en studie om riskkapitalanvändning inom den svenska filmbranschen

Författare: Tobias Magnusson Handledare: Ahmad Ahmadi, Clas Gunnarsson

Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen är att komplettera forskningen kring kapitalanskaffning inom den svenska filmindustrin.

Metod: Den huvudsakliga materialinsamlingen har skett genom kvalitativa samtalsintervjuer med fyra stycken personer som är aktiva inom den svenska filmbranschen.

Teori: För att skapa en adekvat teoretisk referensram presenteras dels investeringsteorier, samt även teorier som rör kulturföretagande.

Empiri: I empirikapitlet presenteras resultatet av intervjuerna, utefter en rad underrubriker. Empirin analyseras och diskuteras sedan i det efterföljande kapitlet med utgångspunkt i den presenterade teorin.

Slutsats: Användningen av riskkapital sker i begränsad utsträckning idag. Mjuka värden är idag den främsta anledningen till riskkapitalinvestering i den svenska filmbranschen. En påtaglig riskdiversifiering samt kunskapsöverföring måste ske för att göra svensk film attraktivare ur ett investerarperspektiv. Sker dessa förändringar är det även troligt att branschens självbild kan komma att ändras.
