Venture Capital, Private Equity, and the Financing of Entrepreneurship

January 2012, ©2012
Venture Capital, Private Equity, and the Financing of Entrepreneurship (EHEP002070) cover image
Venture Capital, Private Equity, and the Financing of Entrepreneurship stems from a realization that private equity overall - defined in this volume as venture capital and buyouts but excluding hedge funds - has become a vastly more sizable and influential part of the global economic landscape over the past two decades.

The text explores the world of active investing and showcases ways of doing business in a clear and concise manner. With more than 60 years of combined experience as practitioners in and/or academic investigators of private equity, Lerner, Leamon, and Hardymon explain how the fascinating world of private equity works, from start to finish, how it creates value, and where it may destroy value.
