Funding New Ventures

Entrepreneurial finance is concerned with financial decisions of entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial firms, capital structure decision-making and governance issues in high risk environments, and the ways to exit venture investments. The rapid development of private equity and venture capital industries, and the general emphasis of entrepreneurship as a central driver of economic prosperity, has given rise to a set of questions that are different from the questions posed in the context of large firms with widely diversified investors. This course will address these questions using both explicit-knowledge lectures as well as tacit-knowledge experiential learning. This course is designed for students who are thinking about pursuing a career as an entrepreneur or who envision a career in the private equity, venture capital, or investment banking industries where they will be exposed to deals with small to mid-sized firms.
