Initial public offering (IPO) is the stock issuance process onto the public market. There are a few different methods by which a company will first become listed on a stock exchange. The most common way would be underwriters, which are typically financial organizations that supply a company with capital, and along with that comes risk with eventual plans to list the company on a stock exchange. For their help listing a new company, they, of course, require a fee. Another method is by direct listing, which bypasses underwriters and is where the company supplies the capital and risk regarding the listing. All of these companies are striving to be deemed up-and-coming IPOs. 

An advantage of investing in a company that has recently had its IPO date is the ability for investors to buy up shares in a company at a reasonably cheap rate before others figure out what the company is worth and cause the company to not be such a bargain anymore with way more investors interested. But, of course, there can always be a downside to investing in a new company. You are driving blind. Investors need to know how a new company may handle adversity going forward. And trying to determine if the stock is a boom or bust is a tricky process.
