EquityZen is a marketplace for investing in private tech companies backed by top-tier venture capital firms. Shareholders in private companies have a brand new way to get cash in exchange for their illiquid equity. Accredited Investors (e.g. HWNIs, Family Offices) gain access to returns previously limited to larger asset managers: equity in growth firms. EquityZen’s platform establishes a secure marketplace, allowing investors to browse investment opportunities in emerging companies and industries. And it's all done with company approval, a key stakeholder in private company liquidity.
EquityZen has worked with over 70 pre-IPO companies to date.
