Advice for the post-IPO life.
By Glenn Solomon
FORTUNE -- When a venture-backed tech company goes public, their life becomes much tougher. Even for strong companies like Marin Software (MRIN), the key is successfully managing the shift of their shareholder base from VCs to public funds. Failure to do so can be punishing.

VCs need to stop blaming their IPO woes on the decade-old loss of four banks. Instead, they should look in the mirror.
FORTUNE -- Ask most venture capitalists about the recent dearth of tech IPOs, and they're liable to talk despairingly about the "Four Horsemen" -- a quartet of boutique investment banks that underwrite a large number of such offerings both before and during the dotcom boom.

Tech IPOs will return. Just have some patience.
FORTUNE -- In baseball, people get all excited about how a team begins the year. Win 15 of your first 20, and you're a shoo-in for the World Series. Lose your first few, and someone better get fired. The tech IPO market seems pretty similar.

FORTUNE -- Last week we wrote that if Marin Software prices its IPO in the middle of its $11-$13 per share price range, it would represent a markdown for venture capitalists who invested $55 million into the company last year. The story was accurate, but may be entirely irrelevant.

FORTUNE -- If Marin Software prices its IPO in the middle of the $11-$13 per share price range it set yesterday, the offering would represent a markdown for venture capitalists who plugged nearly $55 million into the company last year.
