by Kristi Marvin on 2022-10-27 at 7:44am

The market is down, but so are valuations for private companies looking at their strategic options. There are now bargains to be had for recent de-SPACs looking to execute a post-listing roll-up strategy, according to FiscalNote Chairman, CEO and co-founder Tim Hwang.

This week, we catch up with Tim to talk about how his company has kept busy in the two months since closing its combination with Duddell Street.

Tim reflects on how FiscalNote was able to prioritize key conditions in getting the right SPAC deal and how it is already taking advantage of being a publicly company.

FiscalNote collects data on the regulatory processes in the US and abroad from federal institutions all the way down to local school boards. Tim also talks about the growing demand for data in these realms and how the pandemic increased the number of touch points governments at every level have on business operations.

Give it a listen
