FINC 265 - Entrepreneurial Finance
The course would seek to examine entrepreneurial firms and challenges in financing such firms. The course would be heavily based on cases, many of which would be based on young firms although some would be about more established firms. An entrepreneur needs to understand how to identify a business opportunity as well as how to marshal resources (especially capital) to and exploit the business opportunity. The course would reinforce skills needed to analyze a business (with a strong emphasis on valuation techniques). The course would then focus on issues relevant for financing of entrepreneurial ventures.  This would include understanding financial institutions (Angel investors, Venture Capitalists, and Banks) that provide risk capital for such firms. The course would conclude by examining the harvesting of entrepreneurial ventures where by the entrepreneur and the financiers realize the returns for their effort.
