Until the mid-1990s, the study of initial public offerings (IPOs) fell mainly under the purview of the finance literature.

This article summarizes research examining IPO firms that has appeared in management and entrepreneurship journals, highlighting in particular the influence of individuals (namely executives and boards of directors) on IPO firm outcomes.
