Older people and those who do not drive rely on the service to get to hospital and GPs, and for many residents the DB1
is their only means of getting to work.
Countries are then rated accordingly, with DB1
representing the lowest risk, and DB7 the highest.
When contrasting this proposition empirically - using data from DB1 - he found two types of complexity which had an influence on the propensity to form joint ventures, although in different degrees related to the nationality of the partners.
The data base DB1 was built from information published in the Spanish economic press relative to cooperative agreements.
These joint ventures have characteristics that are complementary to those included in DB1, as:
The information gathered about joint ventures in DB1, allowed us to detect very significant differences concerning the purpose of the partners depending on the domestic or international character of the joint venture.
In DB1 we observe a predominance of the financial services sector, followed by agribusiness, services and energy and water sectors - both in domestic and international joint ventures.
The analysis of DB1 corroborates the existence of a higher number of partners in domestic joint ventures than in international joint ventures.
DB1 Ventures will invest only in areas that are strategic to Deutsche Boerse.
Our objective with DB1 Ventures is to continue to be active in investing in early to growth stage ventures which are core or adjacent to our client, product, geographic and technology strategy.
