As expected, Slack, an enterprise software platform based out of San-Francisco has confidentially filed to go public with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Notably, this is one of the anticipated IPO‘s of 2019 as well. Further, the public listing is expected to take place after the SEC completes its review process, subject to market and other conditions.
Founded in 2009 by Cal Henderson, Eric Costello, Serguei Mourachov, and Stewart Butterfield, Slack was recently valued at $7 billion. The communication platform is a collaboration hub for teamwork, where all relevant information is kept in one place, and new team members are able to get up to speed easily.
