What is an IPO?
An IPO is the process of offering a company’s shares to the public for the first time.
Why do startups go public?
Growing startups often use this process to raise funds to fund their expansion and growth plans. In contrast, established startups use it to allow the founders to exit some or all of their ownership by selling their shares to the general public.
