The popularity of using a special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC) to go public has exploded in recent years, but are SPACs really the best exit strategy for a startup? SPACs may not be appropriate for every startup, and founders considering the SPAC option should understand the advantages and disadvantages when deciding whether a SPAC makes sense for their company.

In our next event, a panel of experts, entrepreneurs, and investors will examine the pros and cons of “going SPAC” and review the key elements needed for a successful SPAC.

In addition to the moderated discussion, the panel will also field questions from the audience and provide specific, relevant advice for both what-if and real-world situations.

  • What are the benefits of a SPAC related to pricing, speed, and flexibility?
  • How should startups evaluate a SPAC vs. alternative strategies?
  • What are the regulatory implications and ramifications of SPACs?

Join us on November 9 to find out.
