The new venture requires a consistent pattern of funding to remain viable. In its infancy, and later in its growth phases, the venture has an insatiable appetite for infusions of cash. A fact that many entrepreneurs fail to realise is that various types of funding may be difficult to obtain or even unavailable to the enterprise; dependent upon the timeframe of its existence. This subject focuses on the entrepreneurial venture and addresses in detail its various stages: seed; prototype; rapid-growth; moderate-growth; mezzanine; and acquisitions and mergers. The appropriate methods of financing and financial analyses are discussed within this context.
