Financing the Secondary Market
Over the course of a decade the financing landscape has rapidly changed for many privately held technology companies. No longer a “short-term” play, privately funded companies are now looking to post-IPO to create a greater increase in their valuations. Many of these entrepreneurial start-ups are bringing in substantial revenues are operating with better business models that help them rapidly increase their private capital. While remaining mostly private, the readily available pools of private capital made by these start-ups make for attractive investments in post-iso for traditional and non-traditional investors equally.
According to Caro, these secondary shares for late-stage private companies have created a new asset class. Creating a marketplace that should be open, transparent and structured as any public market. (Caro,2006).
