Pre-IPO and listing

Pre-IPO and listingCustomised access to capital markets and growth funding

Raising financing in the capital markets is especially appealing for innovative companies that are achieving dynamic growth, and can lay the foundations for future successes. Going public enables companies to raise capital and to repeat the process through capital increases. Prior to a listing, Deutsche Börse Venture Network® brings young and high-growth companies and investors together.
