(Revised from original 2001 version)
Includes a brief overview of key challenges facing recent HBS graduates seeking funding for a business, followed by a 22-page excerpt from the Kingsley Management business plan. Describes Matthew Lieb and Chris Jones, two of the partners who developed the business plan for Kingsley Management, as they prepare to meet with potential investors. Lieb and Jones are particularly concerned about the investors' financial returns and the structure of the new business entity (i.e., C-corp. vs. LLC). Outlines several questions facing Lieb and his co-founders, which students are asked to resolve.
