This guide covers recommended resources available at the NUS Libraries on all matters pertaining to enterprise, entrepreneurship, innovation and start-ups.


Money is fundamental to all businesses. The main monetary factors for entrepreneurs to consider are:

  • Costing: Costs for a business begin well before the business starts. Costs for purchasing equipment, business planning, and sundry fees and expenses.
  • Funding: Entrepreneurs can obtain funding for various sources, such as venture capital, government or private grants, or even crowdfunding.
  • Valuation: Knowing how much is needed for starting a business is essential, and knowing the value of your enterprise is also important.
