This “Advanced Introduction in Entrepreneurial Finance” discuss a number of financial issues that new entrepreneurial ventures might deal with. The starting point of the book is the changing nature of entrepreneurial ventures today, and includes a discussion of important financial concepts to understand the financial decision-making in entrepreneurial ventures, and governmental interventions to financially stimulate new ventures in the society. Particularly, the book focuses on the demand for finance from the perspective of the entrepreneur, and the supply of capital from banks, venture capitalists, business angels, and crowdinvestors. 

"This book is outstanding and provides an excellent review of the study of entrepreneurial finance. It is research-based and expands our understanding of the application and adaption of traditional financial techniques to the management of new and growing ventures. The book takes the perspectives of both capital providers and entrepreneurs, with significant attention being devoted to the financial decision-making behaviors in entrepreneurial firms. Overall, this book is a must-read and offers a comprehensive and critical discussion of knowledge on the fundamental topic of entrepreneurial finance" - Dirk De Clercq, Brock University, Canada.
