The course aims at providing knowledge and experience to entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs generally start with a mission, a new idea that they want to bring to the world. If the idea is original, it is probably not expected by the market, which has to be educated. This is a very costly experience. Entrepreneurs need to gather capital at the start of the journey. They need to articulate clear plans, define objectives and resources and raise money accordingly. They also need to manage cash for two reasons: i) because the better it is managed, the less you need to raise with outsiders; ii) because generation of cash flow is the pillar of the valuation of the company. And we should add that the practical reason why a company gets bankrupted is because it runs out of cash.. The course is based on this belief. We look at the myth of the balance sheet and explain the dynamics of cash flows and the way they should be managed. We also investigate the basics of venture capital and provide a practical roadmap to entrepreneurs. Many courses are dedicated to the same topic. Our originality is that we operate in the advisory board of the private equity firm, Xerys and are board members of their venture companies.

The former as head of investment banking, the latter as head of global markets....

Honte à Polytechnique de proposer ce Mooc sans idée directrice, ni le moindre plan de cours. C'est très pénible à suivre car on met côte à côte des idées sans queue ni tête. Or en finance comme en VC on doit être structuré et méthodique. Ici c'est n'importe quoi. J'ai faitun autre Mooc de Polytechnique organisé par Romain Beaume (starts up technologiques, étude du cas sounds good) et c'était un régal intellectuel tant le niveau était élevé et les idées structurées, la démarche méthodique. Ici c'est tout le contraire. Je laisse tomber ce Mooc dont les vidéos sont d'un amateurisme consternant par rapport à d'autres Moocs (j'ai teminé celui d'Insead en finance, c'était bien mieux structuré)
