Getting Started FAQ

What can I do to start preparing for an IPO?

Most importantly your company leadership should be on the same page about an IPO. If that's the case, you can get a head start by:

  1. certifying your financial statements
  2. creating a first draft business write up with financial forecasts
  3. begin meeting with the buy-side (it's now legal to test the market, and we can help you do just that)
  4. and choose your underwriter
When is the right time to take my company public?

Assuming your company is able to raise a minimum of $15 million, there are great examples of success when a company goes public early including Intel, Adobe, and Genentech.
