Entrepreneurial finance is a fast-growing phenomenon in this day and age. New forms of financing are developing at a rapid pace with the changing European economy and the increasing number of startups and scale-ups. What is lagging behind in these developments is the literature. Until now, that is. The book “Entrepreneurial Finance: The Art and Science of Growing Ventures” is a new standard work, textbook and research book all in one, drawing enthusiastic responses from numerous students, lecturers and critics.The initiators behind the new book are Luisa Alemany, professor of entrepreneurial finance at ESADE Business School in Barcelona, and Job Andreoli, senior lecturer and PhD candidate at the Center for Finance at Nyenrode Business Universiteit.
