A crucial part of the IPO process is building the right team of professionals to help navigate the transition with appropriate speed, effort, and efficiency. Connor Group Partner Randa Ghantous and a panel of fellow seasoned IPO experts spoke in this week’s LS Associates and LifeSci Capitals’ latest IPO Virtual Learning Series session: IPO Roadmap: Building a Team for Speed and Efficiency.
