Special Topics- New Venture Finance

In this course, students will learn about the major sources of financing for new products: traditional venture capital, corporate capital, and angel capital. How those sources are accessed will be done through reading and individual research projects. The thinking process investors use to evaluate new venture deals will be explained. A major outcome of the course will be fluency in the terminology of entrepreneurial finance: cap rates and cap tables, burn rate, accredited investor, CAGR, dilution and anti-dilution, clawback, drag-along rights, exit strategy, multiples, and many more. Methods of learning will include Harvard case studies, problem solving, and individual research projects.
