Welcome to IPO Planner, the authoritative source of information on going public. Contemplating an IPO or already in the process? Our mission is to provide reliable information so informed decisions can be made. Best of all, use of our website is free. No subscription fees. No obligation of any sort.


We help companies in four ways:


  1. Experts’ Forum. Leading IPO authorities provide ideas, advice and information on the going public process and the essential facts needed once a company becomes public. We’re a new website, and we’ll be adding articles on relevant IPO topics in the coming weeks and months. If you would like to be notified by email about important new additions to the site, just fill out the email notification form. Be assured that we don’t give out your email address to anyone without your permission.
  1. Resource Directory. Our directory of service providers involved with the going public process lets you know who the main players are in the going public process. The firms and organizations listed are for you to contact, interview and evaluate. IPO Planner does not recommend specific service providers. Names are provided simply to ease your search process.

  1. FAQs. Our Frequently Asked Questions section provides information on an array of topics pertinent to the going public process – exchange listing information, explanations of going public jargon and a lot more. We’ll be adding to our FAQs and providing answers in the future. In the meantime, if you don’t see your question answered, you may want to check things out with an expert in the field. (See 4. Ask the Experts.)

  1. Ask the Experts. Have a question about going public or the post-IPO period? Just submit your question to us and we’ll refer it to an expert to answer. There’s no obligation of any sort.
