Venture Capital & Entrepreneurial Management
Most new entrepreneurial ventures require outside investors in order to successfully bring their innovations to the marketplace and create a sustainable, viable organization. There are several sources of funding available for start-up firms, but one of the most popular is through venture capital firms. These firms invest in the entrepreneurial organization for substantial equity in the company and with an eye toward a quick and high return on investment. To help minimize the risk inherent in such investments, venture capital firms analyze the entrepreneurial organization's potential for success. Through a good business plan, the entrepreneur can show not only the viability of the innovative product or service, but also the viability of the management team that will help guide that product or process to the marketplace. Venture capital firms look for organizations whose management processes and structures are scalable and will allow them to meet the changing demands of the market while still supporting continued creativity and innovation.
