What impact do SPACs have on the global Venture Capital industry?
September 14, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PDT
While SPACs are not a new fundraising tool, their use has nevertheless skyrocketed since 2019. This trend catapulted many US startup companies into the investor limelight and triggered significant public interest in investing in these companies. In this panel event, we’ll hear from a panel of experts with different backgrounds on how SPACs have changed the investment landscape and what role they will play in the future. We’ll discuss the trade-offs between providing earlier access for retail investors and their risk profile and high valuations. Will US market SPACs trigger a similar surge in international financial markets? And how are SPAC companies faring after their public market debut? What are lessons learned that may be applied to future transactions? These and other questions will be addressed during the panel discussion. Make sure to register and secure a seat for this eagerly awaited panel event in GABA’s VC series.
