From the Back Cover

Proven methods for starting a business today . . . and turning profits well into the future

Like all entrepreneurs, you love the rush of launching a new business and the challenge of growing it bigger and bigger. But, to be successful at it, you must diligently mind the down-and-dirty finance and business details that threaten to derail your plans.

Entrepreneurial Finance is a complete, one-stop resource for the latest strategies and techniques for minding the books of any type of business. Written by Steven Rogers, the successful founder of numerous businesses and one of the country's leading professors of entrepreneurship, this definitive guidebook shows you how to financially set up and manage a business. You'll learn everything from writing a growth business plan and compiling and understanding financial statements to making a company profitable, valuing a company, and raising additional venture capital.

Logically formatted for easy reference, Entrepreneurial Finance covers:

  • Business plans--What they are, what they can do, how to prepare one
  • Financial statements--How to develop them, how to analyze them
  • Money--Where and how to find it, techniques for maintaining positive cash flow

Working for yourself will be the toughest job you ever have, but Entrepreneurial Finance makes it easier by giving you a single resource packed with the latest research, insightful case studies, and step-by-step guidelines for what must be done, how to do it, and what to do when things go wrong.

This Harvard School of Business required read was invaluable in understanding the financial mechanics, in actionable detail, on the entire landscape of smaller-than-enterprise business financials. From investments and IPO back to recommended reports and why, through selling the company and many steps in between, this fact-rich and easy reading book (technical but in plain English) is invaluable.

Steven Rogers was one of the best professors I had at Kellogg during my MBA pursuit. His class was always one of the most positively reviewed and highest-in-demand courses at the university. If you don't have the opportunity to take his course, reading this book is a suitable substitute if you have even a basic curiosity about being an entrepreneur.

This is the best finance book I have read yet. It does not skip the basics and the examples are easy to follow and are useful. I purchased the book because it was required in a Venture Capital class I am taking and I plan to keep the book for years to come for reference.

Format: Hardcover
Professor Steven Rogers was highlighted by Fortune magazine as one of the Top 10 Minds in Small Business which made me want to read this book. Entrepreneurial Finance provides a straightforward, practical overview of the business and financial knowledge required to become a successful entrepreneur. This book also alerts entrepreneurs about the kind of financial problems they may face and recommends actions to prevent them.
