Short Course Description

The module provides students an opportunity to explore a variety of topics and techniques relating to entrepreneurial financing. The course will examine different sources of funding available to high-growth ventures, including debt and equity. Students will gain a stronger understanding of finance options over the venture life cycle, including techniques around deal filtering, valuations, and deal terms. The course is designed to add value to would-be entrepreneurs, employees at growing startups, and those keen to work in entrepreneurial finance (e.g., at family offices, angel syndicates, and venture capital firms).

The module aims to interrogate and answer the following questions: What are the types of entrepreneurial finance available? How do venture capitalists employ deal filtering models? How are start-ups valued? At what terms should start-ups (not) negotiate? The full startup lifecycle will be considered, from a fundraising perspective, from formation (and initial external financing versus bootstrapping considerations) through the exit planning.
