Author Publishes “Venture Finance” for Business Owners, Funders, Advisors

Author, Art Hill has published the 2016 Edition of Venture Finance and it is now available at bookstores, and Amazon.
 
Venture Finance is a book designed for entrepreneurs and business owners to guide them as they manage their business finances regardless of business type, size, or stage of growth.
 
“Venture Finance covers all the essentials of finance for small and medium size businesses from pre-start to growth and maturity. It draws on the author’s experience with his own companies and hundreds like them in a wide variety of industries and an even wider variety of funding and business objectives. Contributors include company owners, bankers, financial managers, angel investors, venture capital fund managers and global experts in company funding and management systems.”
 
With over 30 years in finance, marketing and product development for his own companies and others in America, Australia and Europe, Art Hill’s experience ranges from heavy equipment maintenance systems to commercial banking, and from industrial automation to electronic publishing for the semiconductor industry.
 
“What I enjoyed most about writing the book was the excuse it gave me to reconnect with the very smart and committed people in the entrepreneurial community I’ve had the privilege to know over the years. They include business owners, investors and a variety of finance professionals. Not one refused to share their experience and insights.”
 
For the past 14 years, Art served as Vice President for Economic Development and Director of Small Business Development Centers at Blue Mountain Community College™ in Pendleton Oregon. He has presented numerous workshops and webinars on finance and marketing, and advised clients from one-person startups to large manufacturers. He shared responsibility for FAA approval of the Pendleton Unmanned Aerial Systems Test Range and currently leads the project team for the Eastern Oregon Business Innovation Network.
 
“The most valuable lesson I learned was never to undertake a writing project unless you know and love the subject matter. The book is based on 15 years advising entrepreneurs, over 20 years as a business owner, and literally thousands of hours spent with fellow business owners, investors and finance professionals. If I did’t have that to draw on, I would have thrown in the towel before the first draft was finished. One other lesson – start in the middle with the toughest topics and work your way out to the introductory and final chapters. Might not work for everybody, but sure worked for me!”
