FIN 3000. Finance for Small and Entrepreneurial Businesses (3 credits)


Small Business and Entrepreneurial Finance takes a three-pronged stage-sensitive approach to introduce financial thinking, tools, and techniques adapted to the realm of entrepreneurship and small business ownership. The course emphasizes the differences between large corporations and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) relative to funding, risk assessment, and management. Topics include introduction to financial tools, financial markets and instruments, and management of short terms assets and liabilities. Analysis of bootstrapping strategies in estimating financial resource requirement is followed by a comprehensive discussion of sources of funds for small businesses in the development, startup, and survival stages of the entity's life cycle (including Small Business Administration programs), and in later stages of life, entrepreneurial venture growth capital, harvesting the venture investment and turnaround opportunities or liquidation under financial distress.
