corporate finance 52

1. Find an article about a rapidly growing company that talks specifically about how they manage(d) to finance their growth. Include a link to the article and a summary in your own words.

2. Assume you own your own business (pick an industry and business model that you find appealing) and assume that your business is growing at a nice rate. You are convinced that your business is capable of growing at a much faster rate, if only you had the capital to finance this growth.

2.a. Tell us about your business and why it is growing at the nice rate it is.

2.b. Tell us if you would like your business to grow at the even faster rate you believe possible. Why?

2.c. Whether you’d like to or not, tell us what alternatives you would consider to make the faster growth happen. What would the pros and cons of each one be? Would they be worth it for you?
