At some point, this year became a long-running waiting game for those looking out for technology companies that are going public.

Several fast-growing privately held tech companies, from Box to Dropbox, from Cloudera to Uber, have postponed the rush to public markets by taking on huge funding rounds this year, surprising observers again and again. But those people can breathe a sigh of relief next week, when four tech companies will finally hold initial public offerings.

These companies might not be the most profitable ones around at the moment, but it might be a good idea to give them some time. As investor Tom Tunguz pointed out in a blog post this week, cloud-software companies that have gone public this year “pop” once they become publicly traded.

Here’s some information on the expected tech IPOs coming up this week.
