Raising Venture Capital Finance in Europe”

Kogan Page, the business and academic book publishers commissioned Keith to write a book on “Raising Venture Capital Finance in Europe” and this was published in April 2007. The book is a practical guide for the entrepreneur / owner manager seeking to raise venture capital financing in the exciting environment in which the European venture capital industry is now operating. The book includes a series of case studies drawn from Keith’s contacts with venture capital firms from around Europe about their criteria for successful venture capital investing, what they look for in a business proposal and why they turn down many proposals, as well as cases from the entrepreneur’s viewpoint in terms of lessons learned from approaching and dealing with venture capital firms.

The book covers all industry sectors, though with a bias towards the technology sectors, and all stages of investment, though with a bias towards early-stage and expansion investments. For more details on this book click here: Raising Venture Capital Finance in Europe
