PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS EDITIONS OF RAISING CAPITAL:
“… a definitive guide for entrepreneurs and growing companies that need to raise capital.”
— Fort Worth Star-Telegram
“Combating the often elusive nature of understanding private investing and venture capital, Andrew Sherman has prepared in one reference source a primer that demystifies in simple, layman’s terms how this process actually works. A must-have for any first-time entrepreneur in search of capitalizing a start-up enterprise.”
— Julia Spicer, Executive Director, Mid-Atlantic Venture Association
“Kudos to Andrew Sherman and his editors. Rarely does a second edition of a best-selling primer widely improve on its original. But Sherman’s new Raising Capital does that grandly. For anyone embarking on raising money—for the first time or the tenth time — this is a must-have tool. It’s the next best thing to having Andrew Sherman himself at your elbow.”
— Burt Alimansky, Chairman, The Capital Roundtable, and Managing Director, Alimansky Capital Group Inc.
“Capital is the lifeblood of an organization, and Raising Capital is the definitive guide to making it pump. Andrew Sherman has pulled all the tips and tricks together into one comprehensive guide. Raising money is hard enough; finding out how to do it shouldn’t be.”
— Verne Harnish, “Growth Guy” syndicated columnist; Founder, Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization
“I heartily recommend Raising Capital to all entrepreneurs starting down the fundraising path. If those seeking funding from our angel investor groups would read this book first, there would be a lot fewer disappointed business owners!”
— John May, Co-Founder, The Dinner Clubs and coauthor of Every Business Needs an Angel
“Andrew Sherman has been counsel to some of the most exciting start-ups in the mid-Atlantic region. His hands-on experience guiding companies through good times and challenging periods provides the real-world insight that aspiring entrepreneurs can put to use. Because he recognizes that not all start-ups are candidates for venture capital, he lays out the various alternatives. For those companies which are a good match for venture capital, he provides practical guidance for getting from business concept to successful IPO or acquisition.”
— John S. Taylor, Vice President of Research, National Venture Capital Association
