Innovation Finance Reference Guide
About the Reference Guide
The Innovation Finance Reference Guide explores the growing seed, venture capital and angel investment industry. Written by Robert Heard of Cimarron Capital Partners and Jim Troxel of Development Capital Networks, this guide gives development finance agencies a roadmap for building an innovation finance initiative that supports entrepreneurship, business investment, job creation, and 21st century technology development.
A successful innovation finance program provides access to capital for entrepreneurs, new technology ventures, and emerging small businesses, and can be incorporated into a small community effort or a larger broad-based statewide initiative. The Innovation Finance Reference Guide explains how to design a program that uses public-sector connections, resources, and coordination to drive long-term and sustainable private-sector investment.
