Entrepreneurial Finance

The objective of this course is to provide a better understanding of corporate finance issues confronting entrepreneurial firms. The issues will be explored by considering the differences between firms for which the standard corporate finance model is appropriate and firms for which the investment and financing issues are interdependent. An objective of this class is to further develop the framework used for thinking about finance issues and develop experience in applying this framework to making useful business decisions. Although the learning objectives will be focused on entrepreneurial ventures, they have direct application in more standard corporate, investments, insurance, and banking finance.
