Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It had good information, but some of the concepts weren't thoroughly explained. The terminology used isn't consistent with accounting terminology, so it makes it difficult to keep things straight (considering both finance and accounting cover a lot of the same ground for similar reasons). It's definitely more appropriate for more advanced levels of finance, but not so much for a finance introduction.

This E-Finance textbook covers all of the topics for entrepreneurs in finance, including cash budgets, valuation techniques different than those of corporate finance, and securities law.

Some of the topics covered, mainly the pre- and post-money valuation techniques are not explained well and are difficult to grasp without outside help. If you are using this book in conjunction with a class, it will be helpful. If you are trying to learn entrepreneurial finance on your own, you will have some difficulty with some of the contents of this book.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Naftali/Cliff Anderson on September 3, 2006
Format: Hardcover
If you are involved in a high-tech startup or you want to run the financial side of such an operation then this easy-to-read textbook makes that job much easier. It is not a regular finance textbook which is designed for firms in which intellectual property is not the prime ingredient. It is for people who need to deal with venture capitalists or screen high-tech startups for financing.

The participants on both sides of high-tech finance, those who start companies and those who would like to fund them need to know how financial projections and valuations should be done and how they should be evaluated. For those who would like to learn how Silicon Valley's real main industry of starting companies happens this is an extremely valuable book to have.

This text still needs to have a bibliography to point readers to some of the specialized texts needed to deal with writing the business plan, intellectual property law and general legal issues. A lot of very usefull ideas are held by people who don't know how to start companies to bring those ideas to market.
