Observing how frustrating the process of obtaining entrepreneurial capital proves to be, and how infrequently a deserving company actually finds the money it needs, Ron Peterson wrote this essential book to show just how many different options exist for receiving funding. Plenty of companies in the past found money before the first venture capital fund was ever formed. New companies need to know the highly clever and insightful methods that were used then?and are still being used today?along with the latest ideas that are being successfully tried out right now. Funding techniques including barter, public debt issues, teaming, utility coops, TFT, and Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) are some of the approaches discussed in this book. Alternatives to Venture Capital Funding provides hundreds of examples of how different companies found their capital, showing you what professional investors are looking for and how to approach them. Along with scores of references to different sources of investment capital, this book is a ?how-to? for financing a company and securing its future. About the Author: Ron Peterson is the president of Three Arrows Capital, a Bethesda, MD investment banking firm that has worked with hundreds of new companies. He is also the author of Solomon's Riches, a book on stock market techniques, and Technology Transfer in the Life Sciences.
