2022 Winter IPO Bootcamp

December 14 @ 11:00 - 15:00 CST

Join us for our Winter 2022 IPO Bootcamp with experts from Nasdaq, KPMG, Wilson Sonsini, Bank of the West – BNP Paribas and Woodruff Sawyer

Join fellow Founders, CEOs, CFOs, General Counsels and their teams at this exclusive webinar designed to help private companies better understand the process behind an initial public offering. The market volatility seen in 2022 has slowed the IPO market down, giving companies thinking about listing more time to prepare and strategize. Our experts will share – how to prepare, ways to avoid pitfalls, and strategies for a successful transition to being a public company.


This IPO Bootcamp is intended for any executive who is involved in devising and/or executing an IPO – from CEO, CFO, COO, CTO, Chief Counsel, General Counsel – to leaders and the teams who are responsible for identifying and managing an IPO.

Space is limited; please RSVP to ensure your spot!
