Entrepreneurial Finance (EF) is a rapidly developing field of interest taught in most European business schools. It is a hot topic, because starting a venture means, in most cases, looking for financing. EF covers a rather comprehensive area, including understanding the different sources of funding, estimating the financial needs of the venture, knowing where to look for which sources of funding, how to approach investors, how investors value new businesses, how to negotiate conditions, understanding legal issues to protect the business, tracking performance and, finally, assessing the harvesting event. Mastery thereof will significantly increase the chances of entrepreneurs being successful in their new venture, from both a financial and business perspective. Currently, most European EF faculty are using separate chapters from a wide variety of books, as there is a feeling that no one textbook can cover the topic well in a European context. The books currently on the market are either US oriented - in approach and sample applications - or outdated regarding European perspectives. The goal of this book is to become "the" textbook for use across European business schools. The text book will provide the key insights and most recent developments in EF, founded in theoretical frameworks and illustrated with practical (case) challenges. It will be developed through contributions of a selected group of top EU EF faculty.
