#1. What is an IPO and why are they important for a company’s growth?
Before we look at the upcoming IPOs in India, let’s first understand what an IPO actually is. An Initial Public Offering or IPO is a way for private companies to become public and raise capital.
A company that aims to go public typically hires an investment bank or underwriter to help it through the process. The investment bank will determine a price for the company’s shares and sell them in exchange for money from investors.
Once a company has gone public, it becomes listed on the stock exchange and can now receive financial support from all kinds of investors. The money raised through an IPO is crucial for a company’s growth and it is one of the most important events in its lifetime.

#3. How to invest in an IPO and what you need to know before you do
If you plan to invest in an IPO, then you must know a few things first. IPOs are significantly riskier than other investments and there is always a chance that you may lose your money.
Some of the most important things to consider before investing in an IPO are:
- The price – You should never invest your money into something that you don’t understand. It’s better to invest in something that you’re aware of than taking a risk on something new. That is the reason why you need to make sure that you understand how much money the company is asking for, and why. If there’s anything unclear about it, definitely don’t invest.
- Interested investors – The reason why companies go public is so that they can access millions of dollars in funding, to develop their business and expand.
- The company – It’s not just about investing in a new company. If you really want to invest in an IPO, then you must research the company and its market. You need to make sure that the company is actually an IPO and not a scam!
- Timing – If you’re going to invest in an IPO, then you need to know when to buy. You mustn’t invest right before the IPO starts, because you may lose out on some of the profits. It’s also important that you don’t invest too late into the IPO, because then your investment may be locked in for years.
