'Comprehensive and detailed, yet presented in a very understandable and straightforward manner, Cornwall, Vang and Hartman’s Entrepreneurial Financial Management is the best text I have found for undergraduates in entrepreneurial finance. The financial templates provided by the authors are extremely useful in helping students understand critical concepts such as how to prepare financial forecasts, manage cash flows, and evaluate financing options.' - Kendall Artz, Baylor University, USA
