In this Investor Tutorial, Jamie McDonald discusses venture capital (VC) firms. While VCs predominantly operate in the early stages of a private company’s transformation, their mandates and return objectives can have wide-ranging implications for valuations of publicly listed companies. McDonald breaks down the initial public offering (IPO) process, regulatory requirements, the emergence of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), and how a VC exit can create opportunities for investors in the secondary market.
