This is a course about financing new entrepreneurial ventures. We will focus on high potential firms that have the possibility of creating a national and/or international impact. This is not exclusive to, but may often mean, ventures that are financed by venture capital funds and exploit high technology and/or participate in new or emerging markets.
We will take two perspectives: that of the entrepreneur and that of the investor. Therefore, this course is of interest to those who wish to advise entrepreneurs and/or investors. We will place special focus on how companies are formed with a view to rewarding founders and employees and securing financing, how financing is secured and structured. As part of this process we will examine sources of capital, focusing on venture capital, both the industry and the business, and alternative sources of capital.
