How to Navigate Liquidity and Secondaries

After the collapse of SVB, the topic of liquidity has been brought to the forefront.

Have you ever wondered:

  • Who steps in when investors pull out?
  • How does the secondary market function?
  • How do founders cash in on their “on paper” worth?
  • Now that SPAC and IPOs are dead, how will companies return?
  • What happens at the end of a 10 year VC fund timeline?
  • What makes a secondary fund different then a traditional VC fund?

Join our host, Marc Penkala, of āltitude for an interview with Kristaps Ronis of Ion Pacific as they peel back the curtain on the mysterious financial world of secondary funds. We’ll answer the questions above as well as take a broad to narrow look at the place of secondary funds in the value chain. Plus we’ll discuss the secondary approaches of hybrid funds, fund of funds as well as examine rumors and speculations about “distressed” assets. Maybe there will even be a healthy dose of cryptobro schadenfreude.
