 Did You Know: 

The world’s first “IPO” took place in 1602.

It was the Dutch East India Co., which had a royal charter that granted it a 20-year monopoly on spice trade with the East Indies.

The company’s de facto ticker was VOC, which was the acronym for its Dutch name (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie).

The merchants that ran VOC formed a limited liability company and sold an interest in the company to investors in exchange for a % of profit which was highly volatile because – well, it’s the frickin’ spice trade and there’s no guarantee the ship is making it across the Atlantic (twice).

At its peak, VOC was worth ~$8T in today’s money and things got really crazy in 1634 when VOC started bringing back tulips, precipitating one of history’s greatest bubbles.
