OverviewSuggest Edit

EquityZen connects shareholders of private companies with investors seeking alternative investments. Private company shareholders have a brand new way to diversify and monetize their holdings. EquityZen’s proprietary solution provides access to cash without any effect on the company’s shareholder count or capitalization table. Meanwhile, accredited investors (AIs) gain access to returns previously limited to larger asset managers: upside in growth firms. EquityZen’s platform establishes a secure marketplace, allowing AIs to browse investment opportunities in emerging companies and industries.
