EM Chat: The Process Of Taking Plenti Through An IPO

In by EquityMatesLeave a Comment

In 2020 we’ve focussed on the Initial Public Offering process, and have spoken with a few CEOs and founders who have gone through the process with their company.

Recently you may have noticed our friends at Plenti (formally RateSetter) not only did a brand change, but they also listed on the ASX.

We brought in Ben Milsom (Chief Commercial Officer) and Glenn Riddell (Chief Operating Officer) to help us unpack the process they went through, and what is next for Plenti.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The background of Ben and Glenn, and how they both came to be co-founders of Plenti
  • What it was like inside the room when they decided they wanted to do an IPO
  • The process they went through to prepare for the IPO
  • The decision to rebrand
  • Why they’ve introduced a rate cap
  • What life is like in the public markets
  • Plus much more!
