Oxford Executive MBA
Silicon Valley Elective: Entrepreneurial Finance
The objective of this course is to develop an understanding of how early stage ventures get financed. To do this, the focus is aiming to look through the lens of the investor. This does not mean that the course is not equally relevant to those who want to be entrepreneurs - all the issues that the VC cares about, the entrepreneur has to care about, whether they want to or not!
The course is taught by Tim Jenkinson and Allen Morgan and includes selected guest speakers and site visits, such as to the Googleplex, to learn directly from people and businesses in the local area.
Allen Morgan is an active early-stage investor, the Managing Director of the Idealab New Venture Group, and a Venture Advisor at Mayfield Fund, where he was a Managing Director for 12 years.
