Full report in PDF format


  • The Cypress Equity Fund achieved its limited goal of initiating venture capital investments by state institutional investors and banks. However, due to the fund's design, it has not contributed to the achievement of its more important goal of improving Florida businesses' access to venture capital.
  • Although the Cypress Equity Fund has not improved Florida businesses' access to venture capital, discontinuing the fund would not benefit the state.
