Summary/Abstract: The paper seeks to identify the limits of the funding gap in relation to equity capital in Poland.

Further aims of the article are to: 1) put definitions related to the financial gap in order, 2) analyse the VC market in Poland, particularly in terms of investment limits and stage business financing, 3) analyse the business angel market in Poland.
