There are a lot of misconceptions causing companies to hold back from embracing liquidity. Here, we dispel the most common liquidity myths.
We held our second Future of Liquidity event earlier this month in New York City. In partnership with Company, over 120 lawyers, investors, founders and CFOs came together to discuss recent trends in liquidity and their potential impact on private companies and venture portfolios.
Our panel, moderated by Carta’s CFO, Charly Kevers, included:
- John Buttrick, Partner at Union Square Ventures
- Cameron Contizano, Partner at Goodwin Procter
- Jason Costi, former CFO at Casper & Bonobos
They discussed their experience in running tender offers and liquidity events, as well as different aspects (financial, legal, talent retention) of the transactions and the changing landscape of private markets.
“There’s this concept of wanting to see more liquidity earlier. We see employees asking how they are going to get their compensation because it’s so heavily tied into these companies.”–Cameron Contizano, Partner at Goodwin Procter
