Companies do not begin an IPO upon launch. While successful startups may go public eventually, it takes a firm time to establish the necessary business plan and market position. This is, in part, so that the firm can attract investors and in part so that it can meet many of the SEC's qualifications for an IPO.

My team explored every option we could imagine to elevate our strategic investment capabilities for early stage engagement to the next level. We quickly aligned around the notion of starting with a blank sheet of paper – what could we do if Cisco removed all constraints? Thus began the process of finding the right partner to help us begin filling out that sheet of paper. I had the opportunity to meet Jon Sakoda personally many years ago. He was a founder himself, having started his first company back in 2001, which he successfully exited before becoming a venture capitalist at one of the most preeminent firms in the industry for the next 12 years.What made Jon special wasn’t just the fact that he was a successful investor across a broad set of areas, from enterprise software to consumer internet companies, he had a shared vision for what we could do together. From the onset, we knew there was a unique opportunity to marry the best of early stage venture with the best of what a company like Cisco can offer. Over the course of a year, Jon and my team started filling in the blanks – leading to the formation of Decibel as the first independent, early stage venture capital firm to be created by a major technology company focused exclusively on early stage investing in the Enterprise.

When DocSend conducted this study previously, we found that the average length of a Series seed or pre-seed was about 11-15 weeks.

The company’s stock began trading on the New York Stock Exchange at $14.50 a share, slipped below $14 in the afternoon and ended the day at $13.50. The lackluster first day of trading did not come close to fulfilling what Casper’s venture-capital investors thought it was worth a few months ago.

The Femtech movement is progressing into a more intersectional territory, where otherwise non-female exclusive issues meet the specific needs of the female biology.
