2024 IPO Pipeline: A Closer Look

The year started off strong with four tech IPOs in March and April, but recent predictions suggest that the IPO market won’t fully reopen until 2025 due to macro conditions like the upcoming presidential election and elevated interest rates.

While 2024 is still shaping up to be better than previous years, some companies are holding off on going public for now. Let’s take a closer look at some of the venture-backed tech companies that we don’t expect to see on the public market this year.

  • Plaid: Despite being valued at $13.4 billion in 2021, Plaid’s CEO has made it clear that there are no plans for an IPO in 2024.
  • Figma: While not ruling out an IPO entirely, Figma’s recent actions suggest that a public debut may not be on the horizon just yet.
  • Stripe: With a valuation of $65 billion, Stripe’s recent employee stock sale indicates that the company is focused on building up its value before going public.
  • Databricks: Despite raising $500 million in a recent funding round, this AI cloud platform is not likely to go public in 2024.
  • Canva: Co-founder Cliff Obrecht has hinted that an IPO for Canva may be at least 12 months away, with a potential debut in 2026.
