Who should attend

The Entrepreneurial Finance program is targeted at individuals, with some financial knowledge, interested in learning about the whole cycle of investing in startups. Potential participants include entrepreneurs, with good financial acumen, business angels, family offices, consultants, regional development organizations and advisors.

About the course

Investment in startups plays a key role in the current economy. New companies create most of the new employment, generate innovations and disrupt existing markets. From the investors’ point of view, there is an opportunity to get high returns by investing early in some of the most successful companies of the decade. Angel investment in new startups has been growing significantly, even during the crisis, with over €6 billion invested across Europe in 2015, and with a growth rate of 8.3% annually since 2012 (EBAN). Venture capital investments accounted for €5.8 billion in 2015. This is a very active market and understanding its dynamics, and how to get involved - from an investor or an entrepreneur perspective - is key for being successful.
