Description Entrepreneurs like the adrenaline generated by managing a new business opportunity. Examples of new business opportunities are (1) the development of a new product or service, (2) the management of a franchise, and (3) the optimization of an existing company with problems. However, one of the areas where entrepreneurs have fewer skills is financial management which includes basic accounting, fund raising and cash management. Entrepreneurial Finance is a comprehensive course that not only reviews finance specific concepts but also introduces new financial concepts that are important to the entrepreneur, including how to take into consideration in the valuation process the managerial flexibility that comes with the incremental uncertainty the entrepreneur faces.
