Nextdoor IPO (KIND)

The Nextdoor IPO date is reportedly set for Winter 2021 and will trade with ticker symbol KIND.

Nextdoor is a social network for your neighborhood, requiring users to verify their residence through postal mail. This hyper-local hub for discussion, news, and community info has become a powerful Facebook competitor, allowing citizens and businesses to spread information, organize events, and exchange ideas.

Stripe IPO

The Stripe IPO date is set for Spring 2022 at the earliest, now that the company has hired a legal team to prepare for an initial public offering.

Stripe is a payment processing juggernaut valued at a whopping $100 Billion, potentially making it the largest IPO in history. As the COVID-19 pandemic forced traditional businesses into digital strategies, Stripe became a huge benefactor. Is it time to cash in?

Instacart IPO

The Instacart IPO is reportedly set for late 2021 but few other details are known.

The grocery delivery app saw outrageous success in 2020, a pandemic infused year that saw the masses flock to unconventional food delivery solutions. Instacart assigns a personal shopper to each order, delivering groceries and other conveniences directly to your doorstep from popular retailers.

Instacart CEO, Fidji Simo, was part of the executive team that took Facebook public in 2012, driving further speculation that an IPO is imminent.

  • IPO Date: Late 2021 (unconfirmed)
  • Valuation: $39 Billion
  • Ticker: Unassigned
  • Prospectus: Not yet filed (S-1 Form)
  • Website: https://www.instacart.com/
  • CEO: Fidji Simo

Rivian IPO

The Rivian IPO date will reportedly take place in September 2021 with a valuation of around $70 Billion.

Rivian is an electric vehicle maker backed by Amazon (the latter of which has already promised to purchase 100,000 vehicles upon debut). The Rivian R1T pickup truck is a $70k “adventure vehicle” taking on the likes of Tesla’s Cybertruck and Ford’s F-150 Lightning.

Discord IPO

Discord offers free online chat solutions from communities of all types, but has seen the greatest success with the gaming audience, including exclusive partnerships with Microsoft and Sony for Xbox and Playstation. The online platform has emerged to compete with more traditional communication platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and now Zoom.

Chime IPO

The Chime IPO date will reportedly occur in late 2021 or early 2022. Having grown by over 900% during the pandemic, investors are eagerly awaiting Chime’s initial public offering.

Chime is a financial app with 12 million customers, making it among the most popular digital banking apps in the world. By leveraging relationships with banks, Chime can focus on their software and user experience, providing a helpful, easy, and free service focused on profiting with their customers (instead of from them). That’s why Chime never has monthly service fees or overdraft charges.

Authentic Brands IPO

Authentic Brands Logo

Authentic Brands Group (AUTH) owns brands like Aeropostale, Brooks Brothers, Forever 21, Juicy Couture, Lucky Brand Jeans, Nautica, Nine West, and Sports Illustrated. They also manage the licensing for celebrities and their estates, including basketball players Shaq (Shaquille Oneal) and Dr. J (Julius Irving), golfer Greg Norman, and singer Elvis Presley. The company has made a fortune by gobbling up failing retail chains and squeezing digital value from their strong brand names.

The Fresh Market

The Fresh Market IPO date is rumored for December 2021.

This grocery chain, competing directly with Whole Foods, has plans to roll out a quick service restaurant feel to its locations that it hopes will attract a younger demographic. The company has been public before, but was taken private in 2010- will it fair better this time under Apollo Global Management’s guidance?

Stronghold Digital Mining (SDIG)

The Stronghold Digital Mining IPO Date is rumored for December 2021.

The cryptocurrency market has experienced an environmental backlash lately and Stronghold Digital Mining is at the heart of that heated debate. It argues that it operates a “low-cost, environmentally-beneficial coal refuse power generation facility” that is solely focused on mining bitcoin. They claim they produce Bitcoin at one of the lowest prices among publicly traded companies, which might be a good play for wannabe Bitcoin investors who aren’t ready for their own crypto wallet quite yet.
