Watch Now: Funding Growth - When Is Equity Financing Right For You?
August 7, 2019
Many high-growth entrepreneurs need funding, yet banks are not always very forthcoming. When should entrepreneurs finance their growth with equity? In this webinar we examine the pros and cons of accepting equity investors. We take a deep dive into what kind of equity makes sense, at what stage. We examine venture capital, angel investing, and equity crowdfunding as the three main types of equity financing. We also ask how these investors look at growth companies, and what is required to get their attention.
Yet equity financing also comes with risks – from profit-sharing to loss of business control. So what are the deciding factors? When should you use equity financing to fund growth?
Professor Thomas Hellmann is a leading international expert on entrepreneurial finance and high-growth entrepreneurship. He is Academic Director of The Entrepreneurship Centre, Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
