“Cohan and Rangan bring our understanding of the globalization of trade, capital flows and entrepreneurship to a new level. Through detailed analysis of success stories as well as business failures, Cohan and Rangan set out a framework to explain why capital flows in the way that it does across countries, industries and companies. Whether for policymakers, capital providers, entrepreneurs or managers operating in a global company, Capital Rising provides tangible insight into what separates successful entrepreneurs and business start-ups from those that don’t make it in the increasingly global world that we live in today.”--Gregory J. Fleming, President, Morgan Stanley Investment Management and Global Research
“Peter Cohan and U.S. Rangan highlight what they call 'EE' -- each country's Entrepreneurial Ecosystem, consisting of its financial markets, its corporate governance patterns, its human capital resources and its intellectual property regime -- as the fundamental criterion determining inward capital flows. Not only is their analysis extraordinarily persuasive, but their exposition -- example after example, followed by the lessons taught by each -- makes Capital Rising of true practical value. A must read for every potential cross-border investor or investment recipient!”--Edward H. Fleischman, Senior Counsel Linklaters LLP, New York and retired Securities and Exchange Commissioner (1986 to 1992)
“Much has been written about the globalization of enterprise. For the first time, Cohan and Rangan have comprehensively documented the implications of globalization for the diffusion of entrepreneurial activities. Their insights into the context that drives the flow of funds around the world will serve as a useful guide to politicians, policymakers, executives and entrepreneurs alike!”--Leonard A. Schlesinger, President-Babson College
“Peter Cohan and Srinivasa Rangan introduce a new perspective on globalization. Original and thought provoking, they make us recognize both the importance of global capital flows and their impact on the competitiveness of countries and firms. Lying squarely at the intersection of finance, international business, entrepreneurship, and public policy, their book offers global private equity investors with an insightful approach to uncover new opportunities and shed light on hidden risks.”--Mark Nunnelly, Managing Director, Bain Capital
“Capital Rising is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand how the globalization of venture capital and private equity investment is dramatically impacting the rise and fall of industries.”--Patrick J. McGovern, Founder & Chairman, International Data Group (IDG)
“This book combines a broad conceptual framework for entrepreneurism with over 40 brief case studies. Since these cases include failures as well as successes, the authors are able to generate specific and useful recommendations for policy makers, capital providers and business managers.”--Robert Pozen, Chairman of MFS Investment Management and Senior Lecturer at Harvard Business School
“Capital Rising is a very good read and sets forth an intelligent and cohesive approach for thinking critically about making cross-border business decisions. I would urge investors and executives grappling with such decisions to read this book and apply its lessons.”--Thomas Flexner, Global Head of Real Estate, Citigroup
