  • Raising the money to invest in the business
  • Managing that investment properly to generate a return

Raising the money is about having an attractive proposition and managing the risk to investors. Managing the investment is about the financial controls and reporting of the business. This course covers the three main financial reports; financial performance indicators; and investment analysis.
