Financing the Entrepreneurial Business

Whether you are a high-potential entrepreneur seeking capital investment or an investor eager to maximise returns on your investment – learn how to create the best conditions for financing high-growth businesses.

On this unique programme, led by Professor John Mullins, collaborate with experienced entrepreneurs and investors and learn how to navigate each stage of the deal cycle.

There is no textbook for this programme – because no two deals are the same. Instead you are taught by faculty immersed not only in the theory of financing, but also in the practice of venture capital. They are experienced entrepreneurs with a history of success in their own right.

Why choose this programme?

  • The practical, example-led nature of this programme enables you to apply what you’ve learned to your own business needs. Discuss actual deals – some successful, some not – to truly understand what success looks like

  • Boost your confidence to do business in different cultures and markets. Surrounded by an internationally diverse class of entrepreneurs and investors you unpick deals from around the world

  • The programme takes place in the heart of London, a creative, commercially-driven city that is a living lesson for entrepreneurs and investors alike. Meet guest speakers and leverage the global networks only London can bring

  • Build lasting and valuable networks and enhance future deal flow through a wider and more dynamic business network.

The Customer-Funded Business

Becoming an entrepreneur is difficult. Raising capital to fund your entrepreneurial journey is even more challenging.

In his new book 'The Customer-Funded Business', Professor John Mullins examines the key questions around venture capital and crowdfunding, and how to get it right with both your customers and your investors.
