Knightscope Going Public, Boasts "Main Street First, Wall Street Second"

By John Honovich, Published Dec 28, 2021, 10:30am EST (Info+)

Knightscope's CEO proudly declares that they are putting "MAIN STREET FIRST, WALL STREET SECOND", as the company intends to go public on the Nasdaq in the next month.

But will this really put "main street first" for the company that has raised $100+ million from 28,000+ investors, now at a half-billion-dollar valuation?

Inside this note, we examine Knightscope's positioning, its most recent disclosed financial results, and the risk for "main street" as the company lists publicly.
