IPO Market Opening

Published: 8/25/2011 9:54:55 AM

The IPO market for venture capital-backed companies has been almost completely shut with the recent severe market volatility, but there is evidence that companies are positioning themselves to take advantage of a potential re-opening before the holidays.

Three midsized software companies have recently filed to go public - Eloqua, Brightcove and Jive Software. Experienced VC Nic Brisbourne thinks that how these three companies do will be a good indicator of the health of the IPO market.

They may not have the potential of a Facebook-type IPO, but it will be interesting to see if these relatively "seasoned" startup companies with significant revenues can go public soon.
