Product Description: In a rapidly changing world, new opportunities abound. But it takes more than just a good idea and entrepreneurial talent to exploit those opportunities. Among other things, it takes money--usually more money than an entrepreneur can raise from family, friends, banks, and other traditional sources. But where do you find the kind of investors who can make the difference between just starting a business and creating a thriving enterprise, between holding your own and capturing significant market share, and even between growing rich and going broke? The Directory of Venture Capital!

Whether you're involved in computer technology, telecommunications, entertainment, advanced materials, biotechnology, financial services, retail, wholesale, distribution, or service--if dramatic growth and substantial profits are possible, the Directory of Venture Capital can connect you with the investors that can help make it happen.

Up-to-date, detailed, and complete, the Directory of Venture Capital is an essential resource for planning an intelligent, targeted search for capital.

  • Names of key contacts and partners
  • Type and size of investment sought
  • Geographic and industry preference

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”.

4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.

8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
