How to access

During Monday’s session on 26 July, Duolingo (DUOL) will complete an Initial Public Offering (IPO). At some point during the session, $DUOL will become available to investors.

Here are a few things to keep in mind for those looking to invest.


An Initial Public Offering (IPO) brings private companies to the public market.

It gives existing, internal shareholders a chance to sell their shares to institutions and retail investors. An IPO also allows the listing company to raise money.

Typically, an investment bank underwrites the process. The bank will determine fair value for a company’s shares, buy the shares and then sell the shares to its network of funds, banks and investors through exchanges.


Buying on Stake

Investors will only be able to submit an order for $DUOL once it is live. This is often an unknown time after the market opens once the pre-listing auction is complete. While the stock page may be visible on the website and app, no orders can be placed until the stock is officially trading.
