Private Market Liquidity – What the Hell is Going On?!

Jan 6, 2016

A dearth of IPOs from the tech sector this year, and some high-profile disappointments, bring many questions.  Is it best to stay out of the harsh cold of the public markets and snuggle up for winter? Throw another bundle of venture capital money on the fire.  There’s been just 23 tech IPOs, compared with 62 last year.  Yet.. the overall performance has not been as dire as widely believed.  Why would any tech company think that 2016 or 2017 is going to be any better?

With about 150 private tech companies with a valuation of more than $1B, the pipeline is bizarre.  Is it true – something’s got to give? Either more investors, less supply or lower valuations?  Come hear from our panelists – what the heck is going on with private market and long term liquidity strategies!
