WOBSX Face to Face at the IPO Great Debate

On July 14 during a brief hiatus between lockdowns, graduates and participants of the WOBSX program were hosted by Sandy Chakravarty at The IPO Network’s Great Debate – “Should the ASX allow SPACs?”.

What is a SPAC?

A special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) is a company with no commercial operations that is formed strictly to raise capital through an initial public offering (IPO) for the purpose of acquiring an existing company. Also known as "blank check companies". SPACs have been around for decades. In recent years, they've become more popular, attracting big-name underwriters and investors.

Sandy, together with Dan Liszka, is the IPO Network’s Director of Talent and the two work together to increase access to Board roles for the female Directors who are graduates or current participants of WOBSX.  

The event attracted 50+ advisors who support companies pre and post IPO, providing a fantastic networking opportunity for the WOBSX attendees.
