  • Entrepreneurial Finance

    The challenge of envisioning a new product or service, inspiring others with entrepreneurial spirit and bringing it to market can be one of the great experiences in life. Of course, all ventures require financing – taking investors’ money today and expecting to return a significantly larger amount in the future. In the meantime, the venture must manage its financial resources, communicate effectively with all stakeholders and create the harvest value expected by investors.

    The objective of this course is to introduce the financial knowledge and tools an entrepreneur needs to start, build and harvest a venture. At this, we adopt a life cycle approach to entrepreneurial finance. Specifically, following an initial developing stage, successful ventures reach a startup stage in which they focus on their business model and plan. As marketing and sales begins, ventures undergo a survival stage and then typically enter a rapid-growth stage in which they start demonstrating value creation. Finally, early-maturity stage ventures seek for ways to harvest the value created and provide a return to their investors. Upon successful completion of this course, you are familiar with the financial management tools and techniques. Moreover, you will have developed a thorough understanding of potential investors and their mindset as well as the institutional environment in which ventures operate during the different stages.
