Private Equity and Venture Capital

by Stefano Caselli


Venture capital is the most common form of private equity financing. Private equity can also refer to an investment in a business that isn't on the stock exchange. Yet many people often use the two terms interchangeably, adding confusion to the matter. Fortunately, Stefano Caselli knows all about these concepts. He has been teaching Banking and Finance at Bocconi University in Milan for years and has published several books on corporate financing. In this course offered through Coursera, Caselli provides real-world examples of industry models and investment strategies, as well as calculation formulas for company valuation. The course includes interviews with industry experts, who provide useful and actionable tips for making the most of your private equity and venture capital investments.
