Abstract

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.

Keywords: Entrepreneurial Finance, IPOs, VCs, Private Equity, Crowdfunding, Equity Crowdfunding, M&As
