Management teams are working through 2024 operating budgets and hopefully have figured out that interest rates will remain elevated for 2024. Companies carrying meaningful debt have no choice but to assume elevated interest will remain for the foreseeable future (we believe a 5 handle makes sense for the 10-year). In terms of the People budget, … Continue reading 2024 Enterprise Software Budgets: Gen AI To Get Axed?
Should OpenAI file for an IPO this year or next, the questions to ask are: 1.) What percentage of OpenAI's revenue is recurring? 2.) What are customer renewal rates?

IPO Price: Venture Firms know their cost basis, where comps were priced, company positioning, where the equity markets sit, all of which become inputs into the valuation model. The difficult part to replace with automation is … Continue reading The AI IPO Is Coming
