A Rearview Look at the IPO Process &
Operating as a Public Company

March 15, 2013 | 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET


Is this a company that should go public?  What are the pros and cons of an IPO? What kinds of changes need to be made internally in order to successfully navigate the IPO process and to operate as a public company?

With the recent enactment of the JOBS Act and market volatility finally stabilizing, an increasing number of companies are considering an IPO.

Prior to this important milestone, there are many things for a company and its Board to consider.  Join NVCA on March 15th when we convene an esteemed panel of once venture-backed CEOs who recently went public and hear their rear view perspective on the IPO process.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Reasons for pursuing an IPO
  • Internal changes that need to happen
  • Timeline
  • Banker selection process
  • Corporate governance decisions
  • JOBS Act considerations
  • Lessons learned
  • Life as a SEC reporting company

Our Panel:

Rezwan Pavri, Partner, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati LLP
Pete Flint, CEO, Trulia
Prabhavathi Fernandes, Founder & CEO, Cempra Pharmaceuticals
Mark Woodward, CEO, E2open
