Entrepreneurial finance: Unifying themes and future directions

Douglas Cumming () and Alexander Peter Groh

Journal of Corporate Finance, 2018, vol. 50, issue C, 538-555

Abstract: We overview the papers of this special issue of the Journal of Corporate Finance and explain how they fit within the different segments of the entrepreneurial finance literature, including equity crowdfunding, angel investors, debt, venture capital, and private equity. We point to the growing importance of different sources of capital for entrepreneurs and emerging research trends pertinent to academics, practitioners, and policymakers. We explain common questions and suggest scope in future work for combining segments.
