16 Master of Business Synergies (MBS) courses Venture Financing
revenue Maturity Expansion IPO, Acquisition Banks Growth Inception Roll out “Knowledge-based technology-led companies have special characteristics. First, they are harder to assess as investment opportunities than conventional firms, due to the speed of technological development and the central role of people and ideas. Second, costs tend to be front-loaded. In the fields of biotechnology and electronic commerce, for example, it is necessary to invest heavily in development long before any revenues are generated. Third, growth capital is required at an early stage, in order to access global markets from the outset - retained profit is seldom sufficient to finance growth. All this makes debt financing totally inappropriate. Banks are unwilling to lend against intangible assets and are not equipped to assess these new business models, while the companies do not have sufficient revenues to service loans. A knowledge-based economy needs equity finance”. (Prof. Colin Mason, University of Southampton) Debt Financing Pilot test Founders Venture Capital Firms & Corporate Investors Angel Financing time
