Course Objectives
Focus of the course is the launch of new entrepreneurial ventures, and value creation as the company grows, which often requires financial support. The course examines the creation, assessment and implementation of new industrial projects, from a strategic and a managerial point of view. We then explore the criteria that the company must follow in the search of the optimal financial support, and to effectively manage relationships with the specialized intermediaries. The course focuses on generating value from the invested capital, i.e. the left-hand side of the Balance Sheet, as opposed to courses that analyze Private Equity firms, which focus instead on the right-hand side of the Balance Sheet. The underlying theme of the entire course is the role of the entrepreneur, from the start-up of a new venture, to its development and sale. The course includes real-life experiences of guest speakers, mostly entrepreneurs.
