Walking you step by step through a complete "life cycle" of a firm, ENTREPRENEURIAL FINANCE, 6e, vividly explains the theories, knowledge, and corporate finance tools and techniques you need to start, build, and eventually harvest a successful entrepreneurial venture. Extremely reader friendly, the text includes a strong emphasis on sound financial management practices as it explores how to secure financing, use business cash flow models, and strategically positioning your early-stage company. It also teaches you how to effectively interact with financial institutions and regulatory agencies that can affect venture growth and enable liquidity for investors. Based on real-life entrepreneurial ventures and common financial scenarios, numerous examples, mini-cases and even in-depth capstone cases bring to life such key concepts as venture capital funds, institutional investors, strategic alliances, the role of business angels, licensing agreements, exit strategies, and more.
