The aim of this chapter is to discuss entrepreneurial finance in the realm of modern entrepreneurship. We focus in particular on two forms of public entrepreneurial finance: IPOs and crowdfunding. We explain the evolution of IPO research and identify how research on crowdfunding might evolve. Our perspective with regard to crowdfunding is that of a parallel between this equity crowdfunding and IPOs, as research on the former might draw models and intuitions from that on the latter.
