Can you believe it?
You’ve made it through to the end of the challenge! Well done – getting to this stage means that you definitely have what it takes to become a future business leader.
As you probably expected, this week is going to be especially challenging. That’s because you are about to enter a brand-new phase of business. Your little start-up has gone through a number of phases: from the very beginning, where you had to find sources, bring on a team, develop a product, grow the business through sales (organic growth) and acquisition (inorganic growth), it has now reached a stage where it is ready to go public – or, in other words, list on the stock exchange.
This means it’s time for an Initial Public Offering (IPO) – but we’ll get to that in a minute. First, it’s time to reflect on what you learnt last week.
