Ewing, Samuel D., Jr.; Maloney, Clifton H. W.
This minority capital resource handbook consists of a guide to raising capital for minority entrepreneurs and a listing of sources that provide such capital. The first section deals with the process of raising capital. The realities of raising capital, intermediaries and financial advisors, and assessing needs are outlined. Factors considered in evaluating the entrepreneurial team and the venture are discussed. Six points to consider when presenting a proposal to an investor are examined, and a sample proposal is provided. The investigation and negotiation stages and post-financing relationships are also described. Individual investors and various institutions are discussed as potential sources of capital. The following types of institutions are covered: commercial banks, the small business administration, small business investment companies, venture capital firms, corporate venture capital activities, and minority enterprise small business investment companies (MESBICs). MESBICs in twenty-one states (California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin) are listed. A page of miscellaneous sources and a brief bibliography are provided. (MN)
