Packed with tools for building business plans, preparing loan proposals, drafting offering materials, and more, Raising Capitalcovers every phase of the growth cycle and helps readers navigate the murky waters of capital formation. Containing checklists, charts, and sample forms, the third edition provides insights on the latest trends in the domestic and global capital markets, an overview of recent developments in federal and state securities laws, and strategies for borrowing money from commercial banks in today’s credit-tightened markets.

Whether one’s business is a fledgling start-up, a rapid growth company, or a more established organization, this insider’s guide offers readers the strategies they need to take their business to the next level.
