Reddit injected a little life in the market at the beginning of this year, and it’s hoping to do the same at the beginning of next.

Reddit Inc., the social media platform that helped fuel this year’s meme stock frenzy, said it has confidentially filed for an initial public offering…. The company, which was valued at $10 billion by investors in a funding round this summer, didn’t disclose what valuation it would seek in the IPO.

Nor did online marketing tech shop Rokt, but suffice it to say that it’s a lot more than it would have been six months ago.

The funding round, led by investment firm Tiger Global Management, values the company at $1.95 billion, Rokt said. A round last year valued the company at about $450 million. Rokt is targeting an initial public offering in the U.S. in 2023, Chief Executive Bruce Buchanan said.
