Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Apr 15, 2008 - Business & Economics - 225 pages
A principal theme of the book is a plea for "real venture capital," with the venture capitalist adding substantial value to companies and their founders through a wide knowledge of business, in contrast to the purely financial skills required in other sectors of the private equity field, such as leveraged buy-outs.
