Abstract

This video is to accompany the case ''155-C07A-P''. The abstract of the case is as follows: This case describes the financing of a start-up financial services company during the first four years of its development. Like other start-ups, its founder initially sought funds close to home through loans from family members and friends. The case describes how he networked to the larger pools of capital available from individual business ''angels'' and angel groups. His methods, failures, successes - and frustrations - are recounted in detail. The views of several key investors are also recorded in their own words. The case aims to facilitate discussion on: (1) the concept of lending between friends, families and business associates; (2) the opportunities and risks associated with CircleLending; (3) the sources of capital for early stage companies; (4) what entrepreneurs must personally do to tap early-stage financing; (5) the attitudes and methods of angel investors; and (6) the elements of a successful financing campaign.
