It will take a ‘bulletproof’ startup to break the IPO logjam

Indeed, with news that Instacart is now pushing for a 2023 IPO, the upcoming calendar for tech exits (apart from M&A) is more than weak. It’s moribund. Perhaps that’s why the Twitter-Musk saga — an anti-IPO in that we’re seeing the social media company go private — is consuming so much oxygen: There’s not that much else going on when it comes to fascinating exits. Well, the UserTesting sale aside, I suppose. The Exchange explores startups, markets and money. Read it every morning on TechCrunch+ or get The Exchange newsletter every Saturday. What we care about is understanding when IPOs may return, as they could provide another method by which late-stage startups can raise capital. Currently, there’s concern that some unicorns are uninvestable and will therefore die. More capital to the cohort of billion-dollar startups could alleviate some of those pressures, not to mention help confirm the new pricing chart for startup shares.
