Entrepreneurial Financial Management Conference
2nd Conference on Entrepreneurial Financial Management
The Evolution of Capital Markets and Entrepreneurship
Date: June 14-15, 2018
Location: Center for Financial Reporting and Auditing and ESMT Institute for Endowment Management and Entrepreneurial Finance, ESMT Berlin, Schlossplatz 1, 10178 Berlin
Access to financial resources and sound financial management are vital for companies of all sizes. While start-ups enjoy many regulatory exemptions, they also face particular challenges that deserve greater attention from researchers and practitioners. Among others, these include power imbalances and information asymmetries between entrepreneurs and potential investors, limited capabilities for internal finance and accounting functions, as well as challenges in valuing and accounting for intellectual or human capital. Recent developments such as equity crowdfunding or initial coin offerings mitigate some of these challenges, while reinforcing others.
After its successful launch in 2017 (http://www.esmt.org/cfra/efm-2017), the Entrepreneurial Financial Management conference represents a unique transatlantic forum of academics and practitioners, which focuses closely on the interaction of entrepreneurial finance and entrepreneurial accounting. In addition to two days of academic programming, the EFM II conference featured an afternoon practitioners’ session, including three keynotes and two panel discussions that highlight current insights from the European and US practitioner community.
