Featuring a simple yet effective 'Start-Up Financial Control Loop' and 'Tech Start-Up Tracker,' Financial Management for Technology Start-Ups offers a complete and must-have financial toolkit for launching and managing a tech start-up. The book covers all relevant facets of accounting and finance not covered by any other publication by using straight-forward language, extensive practical illustrations and case studies to demonstrate the financial understanding that has become essential to technology and innovation-based start-ups.

Description : The structure of the book and the organisation of material within chapters are well thought out with the authors skilfully weaving empirical material from diverse sources into an easily readable holistic account of the university spin-off phenomenon. . . Many of the lessons learned and conclusions drawn from this work are applicable to academic entrepreneurs in whichever faculty or subject area they work. David Woollard, International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research This timely book fills a gap in the knowledge market. . . The authors should be applauded for taking the time to write and share their knowledge with us. This book will be welcomed by practising researchers. . . It will also be welcomed by busy lecturers, policymakers, students and chief executive officers. Robert Smith, Entrepreneurship and Innovation This book advances our understanding of university spin-off creation and development in environments outside the high-tech clusters of the US. While there has been substantial university spin-off activity internationally in recent years, a number of major aspects are little understood. The authors argue that the nature of universities is changing as reduced public funding reflects a public debate on their role in society. An important aspect of this international phenomenon is an increased emphasis on the commercialization of university research and on academic entrepreneurship. These new ventures therefore involve the spinning-off of technology and knowledge generated by universities. The authors adopt a multi-level approach in their examination of university spin-offs. European case studies are specifically selected to reflect the diversity of the institutional environment. In particular, units of analysis involving universities, technology transfer offices, spin-off firms, finance providers and individual entrepreneurs and teams are extensively analysed in quantitative and qualitative studies. To conclude, policy implications for the future successful development of spin-offs are identified. This fascinating book will appeal to a wide-ranging audience including academics, policy makers, researchers and practitioners with an interest in academic entrepreneurship and university spin-offs, and, more generally, in business and management and entrepreneurship.

Description : Is small still beautiful? The recent economic and financial crisis has shown that developed countries in which firms are smaller suffered the biggest GDP plunges. Today, economic growth depends more than in the past on sound and well-organized firms, which means more innovation, a better educated labor force, higher likelihood of access to financial resources and efficient investments. This does not mean the end of small-sized firms, but that they need to be different from the way they were in the past. This book provides an international perspective on analyses and policy recommendations for how small businesses can reinforce their role in modern economies.

Description : Financing Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Markets offers an original perspective on the links between macro data on innovation, data on micro-entrepreneurial processes and venture capital supply. The authors synthesize two disparate fields of research and thinking—innovation and entrepreneurship and economics—to illuminate how domestic companies compete and the business environment in which entrepreneurial firms operate. Its broad scope and firm linkages between processes at different levels leapfrogs research topics. For those investigating entrepreneurship and innovation in the early stages of economic development, this book demonstrates how micro and macro foundations of productivity, and hence economic growth and development, are inextricably intertwined. Combines macro and micro perspectives on innovation processes Reveals how economic growth and development are inextricably intertwined Uses case studies to portray the entrepreneurial firm and its role in accelerating the speed of innovation and dissemination of new technologies Identifies common flaws undermining public venture programs, including poor design, a lack of understanding for the entrepreneurial process and implementation problems

Description : The Science and Technology Committee welcomes the Government's £200 million commitment for an elite network of Technology and Innovation Centres (TICs) but warns that the money should not be spread too thinly. An initial target of six to eight centres across the UK seems a sensible starting figure. The sources of funding for each centre need to be carefully balanced. TICs should follow the 'one third, one third, one third' model used by the equivalent centres in Germany, the Fraunhofer Institutes, which includes: one third public funding from government; one third competitive public-private sector funding i.e. UK or EU funding competitions ; one third from private sector contracts from businesses. The Committee recommends a cap on the amount of private sector funding each TIC can access in a given year in order to promote a more creative approach to innovation. TICs should build on existing facilities centres across the UK working on innovation and the commercialisation of research. In identifying which existing centres in the UK will become TICs, the primary objective must be the quality of the science and the economic benefit to the UK. The Committee is particularly attracted to the 'hub and spoke' model, as a way of spreading the economic benefit of TICs throughout the country. The possible effect of the TICs initiative on the wider funding activities of the Technology Strategy Board is a concern. The Committee recommends that the network of TICs be called 'Turing Centres', after the founder of modern computer science, Alan Turing.

Description : This book focuses on the restructuring of distressed businesses, emphasizing the need for new financing during the restructuring process as well as during relaunch, and examines the role of law in encouraging creditor confidence and incentivizing lending. It describes two broad approaches to encouraging new finance during restructuring: a prescriptive one that seeks to attract credit using expressly defined statutory incentives, and a market-based one that relies on the business judgment of lenders against the backdrop of transaction avoidance rules. Securing new financing for a distressed business is a critical part of successful restructuring. Without such financing, the business may be unable to meet interim liquidity constraints, or to implement its restructuring plans. This book addresses related questions concerning the place of new financing as an essential component of restructuring. In general terms, the book explores how statutory interventions and the courts can provide support with contentious issues that arise from the provision of new financing, whether through new financing agreements or through distressed debt investors, who are increasingly gaining prominence as sources of new financing for distressed businesses. It argues that courts play a key part in preventing or correcting the imbalances that can arise from the participation of distressed debt investors. In this context, it critically examines the distressed debt market in emerging markets like Nigeria and the opportunity presented by non-performing loans, arguing that the regulatory pattern of market entry may dis-incentivize distress debt investing in a market that is in dire need of financing. The book offers a fresh and comparative perspective on restructuring new financing for distressed businesses by comparing various approaches (primarily from the US, UK and Germany) and drawing lessons for frontier markets, with particular reference to Nigeria. It fills an important gap in international comparative scholarship and discusses a living problem with both empirical and policy aspects.

Description : The high-technology and biotechnology industries have experienced tremendous growth over the past two decades, fueled by investors eager to reap the large financial rewards these industries can provide. More recently, however, enthusiasm over these potential high returns is often tempered by reluctance to invest in innovative products and services whose research and development costs continue to rise and whose market value is still unproven. Technology companies find it difficult to obtain funding from a financial community that views such investment as alternately attractive and high risk. Financing Technology's Frontier explores what it takes to finance companies at the cutting edge of technological innovation. In a concise and practical presentation, this book focuses on the technical issues surrounding financing for high-tech and biotech ventures, addressing those directly involved in the investment process: investors, financial and business advisors, and technology-based companies themselves. Featuring numerous examples and case studies and including a wealth of financing information from a variety of sources, author Richard Shanley presents the point of view of investment bankers and venture capitalists, while also explaining the inner workings of the high-tech and biotech industries to investors. He draws on the real-world expertise of a group of directors and partners from well-known venture capital and investment banking firms, as well as several CEOs of successful technology companies. Mr. Shanley describes business models that encourage investment, examines objectives and criteria used by investors when considering investing in a company, and suggests ways to find the right investor for a given company. He details a wide range of financial strategies -public and private, mainstream and alternative, and corporate partnerships, as well as tax planning strategies for cash conservation. Financing Technology's Frontier equips investors and investment analysts with powerful decision-making tools, makes business and financial advisors aware of financing information crucial to their clients, and allows entrepreneurs, CEOs, and CFOs of high-tech and biotech companies to learn from the successes or setbacks of companies featured in the case studies. It is an important reference for anyone interested in the future of these rapidly evolving technology industries. Financing strategies for companies at the cutting edge of technological innovation The first book to fully explore what it takes to raise money for high-tech and biotech ventures in a volatile financial environment, Financing Technology's Frontier answers the most frequently asked questions concerning the investment process. Addressing investors, business and financial advisors, and entrepreneurs, this book provides information that is crucial to the success of any high-tech or biotech investment, including: * How to obtain financing for increasingly expensive research and development, and how to stay afloat financially before commercializing a product * What criteria venture capitalists and investment bankers employ when considering financing a company * What makes a good match between investor and investment * How to make the best investment decision for groundbreaking products or services with no track record in the marketplace * And much more

Description : This book offers a primer on the valuation of startups. Innovative startups are characterized by high growth potential that usually absorbs liquidity. This is unattractive for traditional banks, replaced by other specialized intermediaries such as venture capital or private equity funds, which diversify their portfolio basing their strategies on a multi-year exit. Startups coexist in an evolving ecosystem with established firms, to which they transfer innovativeness, technology, flexibility, and time-to-market speed, contributing to reinvent the business models and receiving from mature firms feedback on the current market features, the existing clients, and their unsatisfied needs. The valuation paradigms represent a central issue for any start-upper seeking external finance, either from family and friends or through a wider professional placement. This book, complemented by practical cases (concerning, for instance, FinTechs, digital platforms, and e-Health applications) offers a guide to practitioners, students, and academics about the trendy valuation patterns of the startups based on their strategic business planning

Description : This book presents an extensive review of the context and an analysis of the market for clean energy technologies, with batteries as the primary case study. The focus of this book is on clean energy technology and in particular, on renewable energy and portable, mobile and stationary battery and energy supply. The authors examine how effectively countries with large and advanced economies are building and coaxing the markets needed to effectively mitigate environmental risk. The analysis takes a country-level perspective of some of the largest and most technologically advanced economies in the world including China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom and the United States. The authors explore the measures being taken to foster markets that effectively reduce environmental risk, increase its resilience and even its recovery. In the concluding chapter, the authors suggest that while the market for environmental risk mitigation remains nascent, the possibility for its rapid development is high. A number of market coaxing mechanisms to promote its more rapid development are proposed. The book will be of interest to researchers, policy makers, business strategists, and academics in the fields of political science and business management.
