The course uses a two-pronged approach to the study of entrepreneurial finance. First, we will analyze principles of corporate finance, valuation, and coordination and control of firms, with an eye toward developing the tools and concepts of entrepreneurial financial management. Second, we will use cases on firms at different stages of their life cycle to illustrate how these tools and concepts may be applied in practice. In following these two approaches, we will examine the case dynamics and decisions from the viewpoint of both the entrepreneur and that of the investors to understand their motivations, objectives, and considerations. Entrepreneurial Finance and Private Equity investing are intrinsically linked. As an entrepreneur, you cannot negotiate effectively without understanding the investors modifications. As an investor, you cannot evaluate a potential opportunity without appreciating the entrepreneurs perspective
