Is your company ready to go public?  Now?  In a few years?  How will you know and what are the steps you can take to be sure you're ready?

The MIT Enterprise Forum will present "Are You Ready for IPO" as the topic for its January broadcast.

Find out from experienced entrepreneurs who have done the due diligence, traveled the road show, and successfully taken their companies public. And hear from the financial side as to what investors are looking for from companies interested in printing stock certificates someday.

The panel will feature Jonathan Bush, CEO, President and Chairman of athenahealth, one of, if not the, most successful public offerings of 2007 and Jonathan Goldstein, Managing Director of TA Associates. Along with additional panelists (to be announced), the speakers will focus on:

  • the issues a company must address before going public,
  • the pros and cons of different markets,
  • how the current economic landscape can help or hurt your funding strategies, and
  • when is the right time for your company to make the move.

To register, please or call Alice Ettesvold at (509) 375-2068 with the following information for each attendee: name, company/organization affiliation, phone number, and e-mail. There is no charge to attend. Please pre-register by Monday, January 21.
