Enterprise and Venture Capital: A Business Builder's and Investor's Handbook
Enterprise and Venture Capital: A Business Builder's and Investor's Handbook This revised and updated fourth edition discusses the fundamentals of business building, the sources of venture capital available, and the steps involved in obtaining the appropriate financing, including the preparation of a business plan, the choice of a venture capitalist, and negotiations with investors. Also included is advice on how to invest venture capital wisely and how to manage a venture capital portfolio.
Customer Review: Thorough, clearly outlines the issues for the V.C. search.
An outstanding read! Clearly written, I devoured this book in three nights, have since re-read it twice and constantly refer to it for reference.
I also bought the book as a gift for the CEO of an Internet Security startup firm. Interestingly, he left it on a plane by mistake and promptly bought a new copy so as not to go without!
Golis outlines the key elements for structuring the V.C. business plan, which takes a bit of effort to get straight but is well worth incorporating his elements in a formal Business Plan.
As a reality check for other buyers, I used this book as a constant reference source in building a submission for Stage 1&2 V.C. raising (which has now successfully been accepted and is in the 'heads of agreement stage' for $500,000 in funds placement).
The book does not present company management issues. Its focus is on the Entrepreneur and Venture Capital raising issues.
