The State of the Tech IPO
2019 is slated to be a big year for venture backed IPOs - including some potential marquee listings - but recent market volatility and the government shutdown have thrown a curveball. Moreover, the IPO market itself has evolved in recent years, with alternative structures like direct listings and SPACs gaining momentum (or not?). As a VCGC, you need to be versed in all of these new trends as well as the general public company questions that come up in almost all VC-backed IPOs. To that end, please join us as Scott James (GC of Data Collective) and Rez Pavri and Mike Ringler of Wilson Sonsini lead a timely and targeted discussion over lunch on The State of the Tech IPO, including topics like dual track IPO/M&A processes, direct listings, preparing a private company board member to be on a public board, material stockholder considerations, 10b5-1 plans, primary/secondary considerations, evolving lock-up structures, etc.
