“Ries told me he was working on an idea for an alternative market that would provide liquidities for companies that don’t want to go public but need an exit to satisfy their investors. He said the current public market structure is so heavily weighted towards short-term thinking that it’s ultimately bad for business. “If you truly want to create a long-term company that’s going to survive through generations of ownership, the current system doesn’t support that,” he said. “But it should – it’s like a bug in the system.””
This can be disruptive indeed! The point over here is though – will investors accept this as an official ‘exit’?
