Miro Stock IPO Recent News
What is Miro?
Miro is a workplace productivity software-as-a-service (SaaS) company. Its product provides a digital platform to empower teams to collaborate, visualize, and brainstorm remotely or in person.
The digital whiteboarding functionality lets teams draw diagrams, share ideas, and map out work as if they are in an office with a regular whiteboard.
Miro and its user base provide thousands of templates to help teams get started and hundreds of integrations to connect with other productivity and office software products.
Digital collaboration tools have become increasingly popular since the COVID-19 pandemic as workers are more frequently scattered and remote. Miro differentiates itself from other tools such as Atlassian, Asana, Notion, or Airtable with a best-of-breed whiteboarding capability.
The company is profitable but has used venture capital funding to accelerate growth. It now boasts 50+ million users and claims it services “99% of the Fortune 100 companies”. I’m curious which one doesn’t use it.
Miro was founded in 2011 as RealtimeBoard and rebranded in 2019. Its primary offices are in San Francisco and Amsterdam.
Here’s a high-level demonstration of the software platform.
Is Miro Stock Publicly Traded?
No. Miro is a private company.
Who Owns Miro?
Miro is a venture-backed late-stage startup. Equity owners include the founders, employees, and venture capital firms.
The company has conducted multiple venture capital funding rounds. The most recent round was a Series C that raised $400 million that completed in January 2022.
Miro has raised $476 million to date.
Prominent venture capital and corporate investors include ICONIQ, Accel, AltaIR Capital, Atlassian, Datadog, Dragoneer, GIC, Gitlab, Salesforce Ventures, Snowflake, and TCV.
The January 2022 Series C funding round established the Miro valuation at $17.5 billion.
Like many public and private tech peers, the true Miro valuation is likely lower than its last funding round. An updated public Miro valuation will be declared if the company raises more funds or pursues an IPO.
When is the Miro IPO Date?
The Miro IPO date is currently unknown. Despite being profitable, the company has raised significant private funding from multiple high-profile venture capital firms to finance growth.
A profitable SaaS company with 50+ million users would be an attractive Wall Street stock. Its lofty valuation makes it an unlikely takeover candidate.
Therefore, Miro is likely to go public when market conditions improve.
It may not be the first SaaS IPO in the next wave of IPOs, but it could be the first profitable one, commanding a price premium.
Miro may also complete one more additional private funding round to increase its private valuation, thereby generating IPO demand for its eventual public offering.

What is the Miro Stock Price?
Miro is private. There will be no public stock price until the Miro IPO or a SPAC.
Private stock price information is becoming more available and reliable based on pre-IPO marketplace data and other sources.
However, the stock price is only the value of one share. Like public companies, the underlying valuation metrics, revenue, profitability, and market sentiment toward private companies are more significant factors than the share price.
What is the Miro Stock Symbol? Miro Ticker?
There is no Miro stock symbol yet because the company is private and has yet to file an S-1 with the SEC.
Miromatrix Medical has the rights to the “MIRO” stock symbol. So, Miro, the software collaboration company, will need to find another.
We can only speculate about the U.S. Miro ticker. Here are a few suggestions:
How to Buy Miro Stock
Miro stock is not publicly traded today. However, investors can explore pre-IPO opportunities and attempt to participate in the Miro IPO to own shares before Wall Street.
Most investors will need to wait until the IPO is complete to invest.
Here are four potential ways to invest in Miro stock before, during, and after the IPO.
1. Access shares via pre-IPO investing platforms
Considering the large number of private and venture capital investors and significant Series C valuation ($17.5 billion), there are opportunities to acquire shares of Miro stock on pre-IPO investing platforms.
Employees and early investors have no other liquidity options until the Miro IPO.
The author has seen evidence of pre-IPO availability on any of the major platforms.
Equitybee provides accredited investors access to pre-IPO startups by funding employee stock options. In exchange, investors gain a portion of the future stock value.
As of July 2023, Equitybee had limited Miro share availability for its platform members.

The SEC requires direct pre-IPO investors to be accredited, meaning a net worth above $1 million (not including primary residence) or an income above $200,000 (or $300,000 with a spouse).
Other pre-IPO platforms include EquityZen, Forge Global, and Linqto.
Non-accredited investors can own venture capital funds such as the Fundrise Innovation Fund ($10 minimum to invest) to get pre-IPO company access for their portfolios.
However, Miro is not a holding in the fund.

2. Buy the stock during the Miro IPO through a participating broker
As the Miro IPO approaches, retail IPO investors can monitor online brokers offering free IPO investing to see if there’s an opportunity to invest. S-1 filings sometimes indicate participating online brokers as well.
Large brokers such as Fidelity and Charles Schwab sometimes offer IPO allocations to customers but distribute them to their wealthiest clients. That only helps some of us.
However, multiple brokers now offer the chance to invest in IPOs. Here are the most active IPO brokers.
Typically only one of these will get exclusive IPO access to high-demand deals.
Here’s a list of the top brokers for IPO investing.
If your broker offers IPO access, join the email and text alerts for upcoming IPOs. There are no guarantees you’ll receive shares when a deal is live, but you’ll be surprised by the number of IPOs available.
It is helpful to open and fund your account ahead of time. Some brokers require “settled” cash to invest in IPOs. It takes a few days for cash to settle from bank transfers, and there may not be enough time if the IPO is imminent.
3. Buy the stock after the Miro IPO
Most investors are not eligible for direct pre-IPO shares, and getting allocations in any IPO is challenging.
The best chance of owning Miro stock is to wait for the IPO and buy it after. This is not the news most investors want to hear, but it’s the reality.
Often, IPO prices jump on the first day of trading, so it may make sense to wait a few quarters before owning the stock to let the price volatility settle.
You may find discounted opportunities to own Miro stock months after the IPO.
Where can I find the Miro IPO S-1 Filing?
To the public’s knowledge, Miro has not submitted an S-1 filing with the SEC. The company will likely submit a confidential S-1 a few months before the IPO, then release the filing once it is qualified by the SEC.
We will embed a copy of the S-1 filing on this web page for reference when it is available.
Investors want to own companies riding extraordinary trends (SaaS, remote work, online collaboration). But buying stock early on can often prove difficult for retail investors.
Miro is a large enough company with a history of significant venture capital raises that retail investors are better positioned to acquire shares before the IPO.
We don’t know the Miro IPO date, but we anticipate it will go public during the next wave of SaaS and tech IPOs.
Pre-IPO investing platforms provide new opportunities to own high-demand startups. But private venture capital investing is still primarily reserved for the ultra-wealthy, requiring millions to invest in seed and early funding rounds for disruptive companies.
So if you decide to pursue IPO shares or early equity, maintain reasonable expectations. Acquiring Miro stock before or during the Miro IPO won’t be easy.
Waiting until after the IPO is sometimes a way to buy discounted shares, as hefty post-IPO valuations can turn into retail investor losses.
If Miro stock is on your acquisition list, good luck. Invest in pre-IPO and IPO companies with caution.
