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.

2001 Public Venture Capital (With CD-ROM)

2001 Public Venture Capital (With CD-ROM) Public Venture Capital is an invaluable resource you will use again and again when seeking an inside track to government dollars. Relatively few entrepreneurs are aware that government funds from programs with acronyms like SBIR, ATP, Dual Use, ManTech, DARPA, and Act II can provide both initial and later-stage venture capital for their companies. Moreover, public venture capital programs do not require equity in exchange. Funding is available to technology start-ups and innovative firms through a variety of government programs.

The purpose of this book is to familiarize you with the concept of public venture capital and to illustrate how to use the above-mentioned programs to fund technology endeavors. Public Venture Capital brings together information and resources on programs that make funds available to technology entrepreneurs and innovative firms on a competitve basis. Whether your interest is in a specific project or technology idea or you are looking for more general information regarding public venture capital, this book will be specifically helpful to you.

Public Venture Capital provides insight and helpful hints - based on interviews with successful applicants and current program officers - on how to win government funding awards. More important, it provides the tools needed to gain access to revelant programs and people.

This book is organized to allow you to go from broad topic areas to your specific areas of interest. For example, if you have a specific project in mind you can go to the Science and Technology Index and spot where your project fits in. From this starting point you will be guided elsewhere in the book to find leads for making appropriate contacts, to find more information about current programs in your field, and to learn how and why these programs were founded.

In contrast to private venture capital, government is not trying to earn a profit. Its objectives are to generate jobs, to assist the growth of the economy, and to increase tax revenues in the long term. Thus, government programs may offer funding to a broader range of technologies than do private venture capital firms.

You'll even receive lists of agencies, proposal preparation kits, lists of resource centers, list of Web sites, policy guides for specific agencies, sample proposals, and more on the FREE companion CD-ROM!
