Author(s): Srinivas Nippani

The purpose of this paper is to examine the issues that occurred as part of the worldwide problem created by the COVID-19 situation and its impact on teaching the subject of entrepreneurial finance. By staying up-to-date and relevant, professors could use the resources available to them to show how entrepreneurs survive and thrive in this scenario. While the spring 2020 semester presented a unique challenge to both professors and students, professors who embrace it and the succeeding semesters as an opportunity to grow can benefit themselves and their students in general. Professors can continue to use COVID-19 examples in their entrepreneurial finance classes for the near future. The paper is based on the experience of teaching the course and not empirical data, and relevant to professors teaching the course in the United States.
