VC Class from Bill Brown

From our friend Bill Brown in the Law School:

It occurred to me that some of the students might be interested in a class I am teaching next semester.  Mergers & Acquisitions:  Venture Capital, Private Equity and Entrepreneurship.  http://www.law.duke.edu/curriculum/courseinfo/course?id=247  It is MW 1:30-2:50.  We will use case studies that will focus on the business, finance, tax, corporate and IP matters relating to
--VC rounds
--Buy-outs of mature companies/divisions
--Roll-ups (consolidating fragmented industries)
--Financing over-leveraged/troubled companies
--Exit strategies
--Management compensation
Syllabus from last year is attached. 
I currently have a couple of Fuqua students enrolled and would welcome other interested students. 
Again, congratulations!
Best regards,
Bill Brown
