This course is part of the DealCamp Series and builds on the course Project Finance Fundamentals for Infraprenuers which design for project entrepreneur developing Infrastructure projects  but lack the knowledge of basic limited recourse financial principles in making the deal happen. We define “Infrapreneurs” as Entrepreneurs or business owners who are typically in corporate business but now wants to develop a new project. They also called Project Sponsors in the Limited Resource Finance space.
