In 2019, IPOs had a tough year. Reuters reports that, as of December 3, 44 companies had withdrawn their IPO registration in 2019. Is the IPO window closed for tech companies or was the market simply tainted by a few aberrations? Either way, the market structure for investment in early-stage companies - and the path to liquidity - has unarguably undergone some major changes.

As a new year begins, entrepreneurs are reassessing the sources of capital available to fuel their startups and venture funds are reassessing portfolio and fundraising strategies as well. From crowdfunding to direct listings....what is the best way to raise capital in 2020?

Join us on January 16 for a lively discussion. Hear insights from a stellar panel of industry experts on the changes that the future will bring for investment and entrepreneurship.
