Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This paper enables the students in identifying business opportunities and examining their feasibility, forecasting revenues and expenses for business ventures using life cycle approach, cash budget and projecting financial statements, understanding financial statements, and estimating external funds needed and sustainable growth rate. Entrepreneurial finance is important and whether it is micro-finance in a less developed country, emerging economy or market-based in a mature economy. Interventions by governments, international aid and funding agencies are all part of the very rich tapestry of entrepreneurial finance and at times the return and risk parameters are not always obvious.

Teaching notes, videos and other resources will be added, week by week, from the start of A trimester.
