ENFB13-305: Venture Capital and Private Equity


Obtaining funds for growth-oriented entrepreneurial ventures generally is an ongoing process rather than an event. To improve their chances of funding success, entrepreneurs need to be aware of the different types of funding most appropriate to the various venture growth stages and the criteria that financiers apply when assessing funding applications. The subject examines these and other issues associated with achieving funding success.
