People often talk about a company going public. There are two ways to go public. One is an initial public offering (IPO). The other is through a reverse merger where you find a company that is already public and you fold your company into that company. The reverse merger has its own issues that you have to think through very carefully before you do it. The IPO is a really neat way to bring money into your company. It is just a lot of work, very costly, and very time-consuming. Your company has to be pretty strong before you start to go out to set up to be an IPO.
