Is going public the right decision?

Every company founder starts with a dream.That dream may be to bring a new product or service to life, to fulfill the desire for purpose, to create financial freedom, or another business or personal goal. Regardless of the initial dream, after years of personal investment, time and energy, the objective of the company can change.
