Critical Acclaim
‘This book is a must-read for anyone interested in entrepreneurial finance. From the traditional funding sources to the new financial landscape created by the fintech revolution, Hans Landstrom provides an excellent overview of the field. By adopting the perspective of both entrepreneurs and capital providers and moving beyond the traditional focus on high tech and high growth ventures, this book takes an important step in “democratizing” the literature on entrepreneurial finance to cover the financing needs of “everyday” entrepreneurs and ventures.’
– Annaleena Parhankangas, Iowa State University, US

‘This book makes a significant contribution to the literature on entrepreneurial finance. It provides a comprehensive review of both the demand for, and supply of, debt and equity finance. Theory and empirical evidence are both discussed in detail. This second edition includes important new content on the changing financial landscape. I recommend that anyone who is developing a course on entrepreneurial finance should base the structure and content of their teaching around this book. It is essential reading for courses on entrepreneurial finance.’
– Colin Mason, University of Glasgow, UK

Acclaim for the first edition:

‘I think readers can learn a great deal from this book. Indeed, I hope it will inspire more researchers to engage in entrepreneurial finance as a fascinating research topic.’
– Douglas Cumming, International Small Business Journal

‘Over the last decades, Hans Landström has made important contributions to the financial bootstrapping, business angel and venture capital literatures. In this book, he provides a rich overview of the entrepreneurial finance literature, going back to the earliest contributions and breaking down the “silos” of research on entrepreneurial finance that developed in the entrepreneurship and finance literatures. Experienced researchers and PhD students will find much to learn in this book to position their own research vis-à-vis the state of the art.’
– Tom Vanacker, Ghent University, Belgium

‘This book is outstanding and provides an excellent review of the study of entrepreneurial finance. It is research-based and expands our understanding of the application and adaption of traditional financial techniques to the management of new and growing ventures. The book takes the perspectives of both capital providers and entrepreneurs, with significant attention being devoted to the financial decision-making behaviors in entrepreneurial firms. Overall, this book is a must-read and offers a comprehensive and critical discussion of knowledge on the fundamental topic of entrepreneurial finance.’
– Dirk De Clercq, Brock University, Canada
