Featuring managing partners at top VC firms and CEOs of funded energy companies, these experts provide best practices for venture capitalists and entrepreneurs at all stages of an investment with a focus on raising capital, establishing valuations, determining exit strategies, and structuring deals. From spotting opportunities in the industry to developing a solid leadership plan, these industry leaders discuss characteristics that make a good partner, key tools and methods for determining valuations, strategies for conducting due diligence, and negotiation techniques to produce a successful deal. These seasoned experts reveal their advice for increasing fund-raising, assessing potential ROI, evaluating the timeline of a deal, and understanding management team criteria, as well as provide insight for hedging risks and avoiding common mistakes. Additionally, the authors offer strategies for overcoming challenges, dealing with being green and assessing gas, oil, electrical, coal, nuclear, and alternative energies.
