After IPO issuances came to a near-halt in late Q1 and early Q2, the window reopened wide this summer when much-needed liquidity infused the markets and led to one of the strongest months for IPOs in 13 years. This two-part executive webinar series is on the novel challenges of capital raising during a pandemic and what your team can do to be prepared when the time is right. Hear from local leaders who have recently completed IPOs or pursued alternative liquidity strategies including direct listings, SPACs, secondary transactions and M&A.
