Practical Books For Entrepreneurs

While Professor of Entrepreneurship, Dr. McKaskill recognised that the theory of Entrepreneurship was immature and that many of the topics were undeveloped or under researched. But the bigger problem was that there was very little literature for practicing entrepreneurs and their executive teams.

Over fifteen years, Dr. McKaskill researched many topics which he considered would be of considerable benefit to practicing entrepreneurs and authored books on those topics. These books are strong theoretically but also highly pragmatic. They set out to provide a guide to best practice in each area with clear guidelines on how to improve the profitability, growth and exit value of the venture.

Full length ebooks are grouped into General, Financial Management, Entrepreneurial Strategies and Angel Investing.

The Masterclass series of ebooks contain over 330 published articles which have been organised into themes. Each will provide valuable insights into a specific problem, issue or opportunity faced by the high growth entrepreneurial venture.

These ebooks are all in pdf format and can be downloaded here for free.
