Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Starting and growing a new venture is a difficult proposition due to the many problems and risks associated with creating something new. This activity has a high failure rate regardless of the stage of development or the country hosting the new venture formation. Three general problem areas have been identified causing this failure rate: Management, marketing, and finance. According to the Small Business Administration in the United States, finance, or to be more specific, the lack of knowledge of finance is the root cause of 74% of small business failure.

This Special Issue focuses on this lack of knowledge by soliciting papers on obtaining finance for the venture at various stages of development throughout the world. Papers can range from looking at various types of finance available in the enterprise capital market (financial market for privately held companies); methods for approaching these capital markets; and terms and conditions of obtaining the capital needed.
