Description

Financing the creation and/or expansion of a business is a daunting and confusing prospect for many entrepreneurs. Most of the specialised press gives such a large focus on venture capital that many entrepreneurs don't even know about alternative ways to fund their dreams, let alone which one is the most efficient for their situation. Unlike what most people think, Venture Capital is the most expensive money in the world and loans are the cheapest (cheaper than your own savings), so when to choose what and why?

This course aims to help entrepreneurs explore all the possible sources of capital available and discuss which one is best for each situation.
