The upcoming IPOs pipeline has slowed after the hyperactivity of 2020-2021. Below discussed are some of the most exciting and highly anticipated IPOs for 2022 and beyond. Some of these may follow a traditional IPO route, while others may look to go public via SPAC (special purposes acquisition company).

Customers shop online using the Instacart Marketplace via desktop or handheld devices. Reuters reported on November 12th, 2020, that the company had chosen Goldman Sachs to lead the IPO at a $30 billion valuation. On March 2nd, 2021, Instacart announced a $265 million round of funding, valuing the company at $39 billion, but a year later, slashed its valuation to $24 billion based on market conditions and declared they are in “no rush” for an IPO. Instacart filed confidentially for an IPO with the SEC on May 11th, 2022, suggesting a 2022 IPO is imminent once statements are reviewed and approved by regulators.
