Thematic courses

Designed for tech startups and high-growth technology companies, this track focuses on accessing new capital sources and preparing for IPO as a Tech company.

Focused on integrating Environmental, Social and Governance factors into business decision-making processes, this track provides guidance on sustainability reporting, stakeholder engagement, and climate risk management.

Helping you stay up-to-date on the latest trends and developments on the capital market and learn how to navigate market volatility as a listed company.

IPOready also offers a special track for private companies with strong founder ownership, particularly adapted to family-owned businessess. This track offers guidance on succession planning, governance structures, and managing family dynamics, as well as resources on attracting and retaining institutional investors.

4 modules of knowledge-sharing and networking


Interactive courses are held locally by partners to educate participants on capital markets topics including the IPO process, legal matters and attracting investors.

Workshop sessions cover a range of topics related to Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) including:

  • Organisational structure & corporate governance
  • Tax and legal implications
  • Investors’ engagement
  • Corporate and equity story
  • IPO readiness
  • ESG in the life of a listed company


Throughout the year, all participants receive individual training and tailor-made mentoring from dedicated professionals:

  • auditors
  • lawyers
  • financial communications experts

These one-to-one coaching meetings with partners are a unique opportunity for companies to discuss and examine their main challenges.


You can tailor your educational experience to your specific needs and interests within three different tracks: Tech, ESG and Market Trends.


Once a year, a global closing campus is held with all IPOready participants from across Europe, providing cutting-edge knowledge, interactive sessions and valuable networking opportunities.

What entrepreneurs think of IPOready

IPOready helped accelerate our growth plans. We learned valuable lessons from top-class advisors and our fellow programme participants. Our approach to strategic finance and overall company ambition have benefited directly.

IPOready provides you with knowledge that is difficult to gain elsewhere. I found the programme interesting and very educational. Although I have studied finance, I learned a lot by participating in the IPOready programme.

IPOready was a great experience – the networking, mentoring and quality and choice of speakers gave huge insights to the world of strategic financing options in order to scale your business. A very insightful and thoroughly enjoyable course which I would highly recommend


Attended IPOready programme in 2021

I met with a lot of peers and that was really interesting to understand what their challenges and plans are. And then I also met a lot of high-quality speakers and it was really interesting to have their perspectives and points of view as public investors mindset. As a CFO I have my challenges and I don’t often have that many opportunities to talk to public investors
