Venture Capital and Private Equity Contracting. An International Perspective

  • ID: 1765507
  • Book
  • April 2009
  • Region: Global
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
Other books present corporate finance approaches to the VC/PE industry, but many key decisions require an understanding of the ways that law and economics work together. Venture Capital and Private Equity Contracting is better than straight corporate finance textbooks because it offers broad perspectives and principles that enable readers to deduce the economic implications of specific contract terms. This approach avoids the common pitfalls of implying that contractual terms apply equally to firms in any industry anywhere in the world.
