9780127223513: Raising Entrepreneurial Capital

Raising Entrepreneurial Capital begins where entrepreneurship books leave off. This book provides a broad, high-level discussion of the financing decisions that companies must make to achieve success. With a focus on classic capital raising, the text covers the debt vs. equity decision, as well as the options available to smaller businesses. It also describes the factors that lead to rapid growth, including venture capital, IPOs, angels, incubators, and much more.

Combining solid theory with practitioner's experience and insights, this book should increase student understanding of how to raise entrepreneurial capital. It explains how your company should position itself to attract private equity investment, and what steps you can take to improve your company's marketability. It includes several chapters on worldwide regional variations on forms and availability of pre-seed capital, incubators, and the business plans they create, with case-studies from Europe, Latin America, and the Pacific Rim. It also effectively differentiates between venture capital and entrepreneurial capital.

This book will appeal to entrepreneurs and to students in Entrepreneurship programs, particularly entrepreneurial finance courses.



* Combines solid theory with practitioner's experience and insights
* Case studies illustrate theory throughout the book
* Describes worldwide and regional variations in capital raising strategies

Review:

"Raising capital is a dynamic topic that Vinturella and Erickson have dealt with in a real-world up-to-date manner applicable to founders of all types of companies. There are far more capital sources than most entrepreneurs realize and the authors have provided an exhaustive approach that will help direct a capital raising effort and increase its chances of success."
-- Janis Machala, Managing Partner, Paladin Partners

"Experiential in its approach, this book will be a great resource as a guide to the potential entrepreneur while also serving as an excellent text in Entrepreneurial Studies programs and other courses. Covering topics of crucial importance and providing a wealth of details, it also includes a variety of material not commonly found in finance texts."
-- Alva Butcher, Acting Director, School of Business and Leadership, University of Puget Sound

"Need money to launch your venture? You need this book. Raising Entrepreneurial Capital will guide you through the intracacies and alternatives for raising money, growing, and harvesting your business venture. It offers practical guidelines and insightful cases that enhance your probability of success."
-- John B. Elstrott Jr., Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship, Freeman School of Business, Tulane University

"I have been an entrepreneur, venture investor or venture capitalist most of my 30-year professional business career and have been involved in the startup of over 40 companies, some very successful and some not so successful. After reading Raising Entrepreneurial Capital, my only regret is that I did not have access to this book of business knowledge at the beginning of my career. Most of the lessons I learned on the job (many the hard way!) trying to raise money, every way known to man, are in this book and I find it amazing how much of it is accurately covered in depth by the authors. It will be a great textbook for teaching entrepreneurial finance. I have never seen a book that covers everything one needs to know in such great depth. This book should be required reading for anyone thinking about starting up a new business. It will save a lot of wasted time and heartache for a new entrepreneur."
-- Kent L. Johnson, Chairman and Managing Director, Alexander Hutton Venture Capital, Chairman of the Advisory Board of Seattle University's Entrepreneurship Center

"John Vinturella takes a "fundamentals of finance" type primer to a whole new level. Filled with stats, tables, case studies, models and pros and cons of various financing options, this comprehensive and practical text is both a refreshing guide and a resource for small business entrepreneurs, students, lenders and investors alike!"
-- Paul I. Karofsky, Executive Director, Northeastern University Center for Family Business
