Initial Public Offering (IPO)

Initial Public Offering (IPO)

An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is the process where a private company becomes listed on a public stock exchange and offers new shares.

Prior to an IPO, the company is private and shares are usually held by the founder, early employees, VC firms, and angel investors.

An IPO is a great way for a business to raise money by allowing public investors to invest in the business for the first time.
