The increasing complexity of managing venture business has made it necessary for Malaysian venture capitalists to develop cordial relationships with the entrepreneurs in order to achieve mutual goal.However, the warm venture cooperation built between venture capitalists and entrepreneurs may still be interrupted by management conflict which occurred due to various managerial factors. Thus, conflict becomes one of the major barriers that may prevent both venture capitalists and entrepreneurs from creating successful venture business.As a result, this study investigates the management conflict in venture capital investments and the possible resolutions for the conflict.Due to this, a cross-sectional study of questionnaire survey research design was conducted in this respect.Questionnaire data were generated from 35 Malaysian venture capital companies located in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
