Pre-IPO Report: A Fundamental Data Analysis

We decided to take a deeper look into a few companies that may be making headlines in the coming year. In doing so we compiled a Pre-IPO Report that analyzes 6 companies from our database that have caught our attention lately having large capital raises in the last 6 months. We have provided granular deal term, investment, and valuation data for Infusion Software, Inrix, Lookout, The Honest Company, Thumbtack, and Veracode. We then benchmarked these companies against other high growth Venture Backed companies that have gone public in the last few years (sample includes companies which have filed an IPO from 2011-present).
