Funding er en jungle! Sådan lyder det fra den unge entreprenør og iværksætter Rasmus Madsen, der med bogen “Pitch Deck” vil forsøge at hjælpe andre på vej med økonomiske overvejelser. Forinden Rasmus selv startede ud som selvstændig, kunne de i hans virksomhed eManager ikke finde hoved og hale i, hvordan de skulle søge deres første investering og kunne dengang godt have brugt den viden han nu besidder. Derfor har Rasmus nu skrevet den komplette manuel til dig, som netop skal ud og søge funding. Bogen indeholder alt det materiale fra deres eget pitch deck og en optagelse fra et event og yderligere en detaljeret beskrivelse af hele processen - og endda med overvejelser om, hvad de havde gjort anderledes den dag i dag.Bogen bygger altså 1:1 på eManagers erfaring, hvor de både har rejst 1 mio DKK, men også misset en kapitalrunde på hele 4,5 mio DKK. Med forord af Lars Tvede samt en udtalelse af Martin Thorborg er “Pitch Deck” den helt perfekte bog til iværksættere, der skal ud og søge funding for første gang. Ifølge Rasmus Madsen har man allermest gavn af bogen, hvis man er på bar bund vedrørende alt fra, hvordan man skal udarbejde et pitch deck, til hvordan man griber hele funding situationen an. Og hvis det er tilfældet lover Rasmus, at han kan hjælpe dig godt på vej!
Beskrivelse: ’Det lille skridt’ er bogen til dig, som enten gerne vil i gang med iværksætteri - eller have succes som iværksætter med dit nuværende projekt. Bogen anbefales af dygtige iværksættere (herunder Martin Thorborg) samt mange andre af de 2.300+ læsere.Forfatteren, Rasmus Madsen, udtaler følgende om bogen:"jeg var træt af at læse bøger fra iværksættere, som solgte deres virksomheder for 10 år siden. Ingen af dem kan huske tankerne og problemstillingerne, som opstod helt i starten. Derfor valgte jeg at skrive en bog, mens jeg endnu var ved at starte mit iværksættereventyr op. Sagt med andre ord har jeg ganske enkelt skrevet den bog, som jeg selv ønskede mig, da jeg var yngre!"Bogen er bygget op som en rigtig lærebog, der tager dig igennem alle de vigtige faser, når du skal starte din egen virksomhed. Hele vejen igennem bogen er der konkrete eksempler fra Rasmus’ egne projekter, projekter fra hans netværk samt eksempler på, hvad udenlandske virksomheder har gjort. Sagt med andre ord er ’Det lille skridt’ den første rigtige praktiske iværksætterbogMens du læser bogen, er der opgaver, du kan løse i slutningen af hvert kapitel, der gør forståelsen bedre. Enten for din egen virksomhed eller for en case-virksomhed. Hvis du gerne vil lave en forretningsplan til din egen virksomhed, indeholder det afsluttende kapitel hjælp til udarbejdelsen af denne. Bogen indeholder desuden flere af forfatterens egne forretningsplaner som inspiration.’Det lille skridt’ er skrevet på et ung og meget forståeligt sprog og er et must have for nye iværksættere samt en perfekt opslagsbog til iværksættere, som har været i gang nogle år.Rasmus har desuden startet flere projekter, som både har indebåret succes og fiasko. Fælles for dem alle er, at de har givet værdifuld læring. Senest har han været med til at sælge den danske succes, Dinero, for over 148 mio NOK.

This book examines the interpretation of the risk-based approach (RBA) and its application across the banking industry. It explores the ways conflicting risk interpretation and deconstruction of money laundering risk have unintended consequences across the banking industry. Furthermore, it offers a theoretical framework that can be adopted and implemented by risk practitioners to address money laundering (ML) risks. The interpretation and application of the RBA influences the way money laundering risk is perceived, presented, and managed, often resulting in misalignment among stakeholders. Moreover, AML practitioners interpret money laundering (ML) risk as an entity that can be contained, largely in ignorance of the fact that ML risk is self-referential.The book therefore addresses complex inter-system feedback phenomena that lead to de-risking and re-risking, and offers a new ML risk communication framework on this basis. It will be of value to researchers and also to stakeholders within financial institutions, financial intelligence units and regulators in the fight against money laundering.
This book provides the statistical basis for quantitative risk management by presenting and explaining the most important distributions. Distributions describe the occurrence and impact of a risk. They are a prerequisite for risk aggregation, risk analysis and risk assessment as required by the German revision standards IDW PS 340, StaRUG and FISG.This book portrays the distributions that are fundamental for enterprise risk management and shows when and how they are used. These include the Bernoulli distribution, the binomial distribution, the Poisson distribution, the uniform distribution, the triangular distribution, the PERT distribution, the modified PERT distribution, the trapezoidal distribution, the custom distribution, the normal distribution, the lognormal distribution, the Weibull distribution, the expert distribution, the poly distribution and the compound distribution. Furthermore, the book explains how the parameterisation of the distributions can be done via expert estimates or algorithmic calibration.

This book tackles the problem of complexity within IT environments, i.e., "e;Cybercomplexity,"e; which is generally recognized as a principal source of cybersecurity risk. The book first defines complexity and simplifies its analysis by assuming a probabilistic approach to security risk management. It then proposes a simple model of cybercomplexity that is based on Shannon entropy, a basic concept in information theory. The key drivers of cybercomplexity emerge from this model, where these drivers reveal the scale-dependence of cybersecurity risk and explain why macroscopic security controls are required to address cybersecurity risk on an enterprise scale. The significant operational implications of cybercomplexity are also discussed, thereby providing both a theoretical framework and a practical guide to addressing this longstanding problem in cybersecurity risk management.

This book offers a comprehensive description and analysis of natural hazard warnings, drawing on perspectives from the social sciences, physical sciences, and interdisciplinary fields such as disaster studies to articulate a distinction between traditional warnings and what might be called interdisciplinary warnings. Traditional warnings approach warning technology, design, and application from a principally scientific and technical perspective. Human factors, while considered, often are of secondary concern. Interdisciplinary warnings, on the other hand, maintain a critical emphasis on the technical merits of warning systems, but also ask, "e;Will psychological and community factors such as culture and structure shape how the system is used, and, if so, can this information be incorporated into system design preemptively to make it more effective?"e; Given the absence of systematic work on interdisciplinary warnings, a book-length monograph discussing and synthesizing knowledge from the various fields focused on warnings and warning response is of critical importance to both academics and practitioners. Broadly conceived, the book presents readers with an in-depth overview of warnings, interdisciplinary research, and interdisciplinary collaboration. The book holds appeal for a very broad audience: scholars; practitioners; and academic, vocational, and technical instructors both in University and non-University settings. It is of interest to academic scholars due to the interdisciplinary treatment of warnings as well as the general presentation of up-to-date scholarship on warning theory. Additionally, scholars interested in interdisciplinary work in general and those focusing on disaster warnings find within the volume a framework for developing collaborative research partnerships with those from other disciplines. As well, the book offers practitioners --emergency managers, mitigation specialists, planners, etc. --a more comprehensive perspective on emergency response in practice, allowing for better development and application of warning policy. Finally, the book appeals to instructors both inside and outside the academy. The authors envision the book useful to professors teaching both graduate and undergraduate-level courses in Sociology of Disaster, Emergency Management Planning, Homeland Security, Disaster Response, Disaster Mitigation, and Business Continuity and Crisis Management. A robust market also exists among professional organizations, perhaps most notably FEMA, which offers countless online and in-person training courses via the National Training Program, Emergency Management Institute (EMI), and other venues.

How might one determine if a financial institution is taking risk in a balanced and productive manner? A powerful tool to address this question is economic capital, which is a model-based measure of the amount of equity that an entity must hold to satisfactorily offset its risk-generating activities. This book, with a particular focus on the credit-risk dimension, pragmatically explores real-world economic-capital methodologies and applications. It begins with the thorny practical issues surrounding the construction of an (industrial-strength) credit-risk economic-capital model, defensibly determining its parameters, and ensuring its efficient implementation. It then broadens its gaze to examine various critical applications and extensions of economic capital; these include loan pricing, the computation of loan impairments, and stress testing. Along the way, typically working from first principles, various possible modelling choices and related concepts are examined. The end result is a useful reference for students and practitioners wishing to learn more about a centrally important financial-management device.

In 1975, the U.S. Securities Acts Amendments were enacted by Congress, which amongst other measures, officially mandated development of a National Market System (NMS). Since that time, the competitive map has been redrawn, technological changes have been huge and pervasive in scope, and the landscape is ever-changing. This book looks at the evolution of NMS and the factors that have influenced it since its development. Titled after the Baruch College Financial Markets Conference, 40 Years of Experience with the National Market System (NMS): Who Are the Winners and What Have We Learned, the book examines the following questions: What is liquidity and how is it best measured and provided? Has NMS-Induced competition delivered? What is technology's challenge to regulators? Are fair and level playing fields a good regulatory goal? What is the buyside's view?The Zicklin School of Business Financial Markets Series presents the insights emerging from a sequence of conferences hosted by the Zicklin School at Baruch College for industry professionals, regulators, and scholars. The transcripts from the conferences are edited for clarity, perspective and context; material and comments from subsequent interviews with the panelists and speakers are integrated for a complete thematic presentation. Each book is focused on a well delineated topic, but all deliver broader insights into the quality and efficiency of the U.S. equity markets and the dynamic forces changing them.
