Summary:This book provides a framework for understanding micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs) as important contributors to economic growth. By examining the economic and investment decisions behind these businesses, the author shows how managers of MSMEs can add value to the firm by applying managerial finance tools. Early chapters establish the basic tenets of new venture development and financing and explore the economic environment that business-owners inhabit, focusing on venture capital, microfinance intervention, and public sector interventions. Later chapters guide the reader through the process of financial planning and forecasting, and valuation, finishing with insights into how to harvest investments and make sound financial decisions. The book has interdisciplinary appeal and offers a timely consideration of MSMEs in developing economies. It will be valuable reading for all interested in the management and development of small businesses, the finance of entrepreneurship and policy affecting small and medium sized enterprises.
