Should You Bet On the Jockey or the Horse?: Evaluating New Businesses From a Private Equity Perspective

Steven Kaplan, Neubauer Family Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance, Chicago Booth

What are the key factors for entrepreneurs and investors to consider when deciding whether to pursue a new business? Which matters more -- opportunity or management? In other words, should you bet on the jockey or the horse? Come and listen to a talk by professor Steven Kaplan who will present his framework for evaluating entrepreneurial opportunities and new businesses.

Kaplan's talk is based on material from his extensive field research, including experience with start-ups from Chicago Booth's New Venture Challenge, a business plan competition that has successfully launched over 50 companies during its fourteen year history.
