Forge is changing the way people invest in private technology companies and manage their investments by operating the largest marketplace for shareholders and investors to buy and sell shares.
Increasingly, an IPO is a liquidity event - not an investment opportunity. The average tech company goes public with a $3bn market cap. With more unicorns than ever before, we believe more people should have the opportunity to participate in that value creation.
Investors want to get in while a company is still building value in the private market and seek potentially outsized returns from pre-IPO stock.
Today, the average company stays private for 12 years before going public. As employees earn stock over that time period, they may not be able to wait for the IPO to cash out and, instead, choose to “take a little off the table” by selling some of their vested equity in the private market.
