    Course Highlights

    Because entrepreneurial finance is such a new area of academic inquiry, there are no textbooks from which to distill all the information. That makes the lecture notes and case study questions available for this course even more valuable tools to help learn this subject.

    Course Description

    This class examines the elements of entrepreneurial finance, focusing on technology-based start-up ventures, and the early stages of company development. It addresses key questions which challenge all entrepreneurs: how much money can and should be raised; when should it be raised and from whom; what is a reasonable valuation of the company; and how funding should be structured. The subject aims to prepare students for these decisions, both as entrepreneurs and venture capitalists.
