IPOready candidates have an action-packed first day in New York

As part of the final semester of the #IPOready programme the CEOs and CFOs are in NYC. Their first 24 hours saw them receive expert advice from leading business figures, pitch their equity story to an investor panel and visit the NYSE.

First stop was at Enterprise Ireland offices in New York where a very interesting panel discussion on scaling, funding and the importance of data from leading business figures took place.

Next up saw the CEOs and CFOs pitch their equity story to a panel of investors at the international investment bank, BNY Mellon.

To round off the day, the ISE organised for the #IPOready participants to be on the trading floor of the NYSE for the closing bell.

Dual listing on the Atlantic Securities Market

The ISE offers an efficient dual listing facility for companies looking to access international pools of capital in both Europe and the USA through its equity market - the Atlantic Securities Market (ASM). The process for listing on the ASM utilises the regulatory regime for companies listing on either the NYSE or NASDAQ to also have their shares traded on the ISE.

Led by the ISE, and supported by Enterprise Ireland, the aim of #IPOready is to enhance the knowledge and skills of CEOs and CFOs in raising capital, investor relations and business management.

The high-potential companies involved in #IPOready’s inaugural 15-month leadership course come from a range of sectors in Ireland including technology, security, food and printing.
