Participant profiles

Participants in Financing the Entrepreneurial Business include both entrepreneurs and those working for venture capital or private equity firms, as well as consultants and advisors to both sides.


Ritesh Shah
CFO - Europe, Rabobank

"Each session introduced a different concept, and presented it in a practical way that I haven't seen in any other business school programme I've attended."

Ritesh Shah attended the programme to learn more about how valuation works for new businesses. Here he talks about how the knowledge he gained about private equity and venture capital buyouts helps him in his role as CFO.

Tim Bode
Finance Manager - Douglas Finance BV

"The highlight for me was the last case study, presented by Martyn Williams. It was basically about his own life; learning from the person who actually did the deals in real life had a huge impact and made it very memorable."

Tim will shortly be investing in companies needing angel financing. To ensure success, he wanted to get more proficient at what he needs to look at when he sees a business plan.  Read Tim's profile and find out how attending the programme equipped him with not only the essential skills he required, but an international network he is still harnessing today.
