Many of their private valuations are enormous, withUber last valued at $120 billionand The We Company (formerly WeWork) at$47 billion. Now companies tend to stay private twice longer than 10 years ago & to go IPO with now profits. With so many private investors willing & able to provide capital, you might wonder, why bother going public at all? What is fair valuation?
