Main Description
Venture Capital, Private Equity, and the Financing of Entrepreneurship stems from a realization that private equity overall - defined in this volume as venture capital and buyouts but excluding hedge funds - has become a vastly more sizable and influential part of the global economic landscape over the past two decades. The text explores the world of active investing and showcases ways of doing business in a clear and concise manner. With more than 60 years of combined experience as practitioners in and/or academic investigators of private equity, Lerner, Leamon, and Hardymon explain how the fascinating world of private equity works, from start to finish, how it creates value, and where it may destroy value.

Main Description
This textbook will provide a comprehensive overview of the world of active investing. An introductory chapter will motivate the book and tell the story of the venture capital and private equity industries. The book follows the cycle of active investing. Raising funds, considering transactions, structuring and overseeing transactions, and exiting investments are considered in turn. The focus is not just on the U.S. market, but on the increasingly global nature of these activities. The book looks at active investors as businesses themselves and introduces the key features of these firms. How groups grapple with questions of scaling and internationalization and the disruptive impact of market cycles are among the topics considered. The book has two chapters looking at the impact of these funds: first, how the investments by these funds have performed, and then the broader consequences of these investments. The book also looks "into the crystal ball" and projects the future of active investing.
