Investigating Entrepreneurial Opportunities
A Practical Guide for Due Diligence



March 2000 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
`The student of entrepreneurship will find this book a valuable resource as it will go a long way to redressing any gaps in their understanding of due diligence... A business studies course based outside the USA could easily develop assignments or run tutorials based on this book requiring students to investigate the financial, taxation etc differences for purchasers of businesses in their own country' - Technovation

In this book, the authors, who have both bought and sold several businesses, reveal creative and low cost ways to do your own diligence in investigating entrepreneurial opportunities. The book covers all the basics, including market, products, insurance, facilities, assets, short and long-term liabilities and much more.
