About Us

EquityZen connects shareholders of private companies with investors seeking alternative investments. Meet the team here.

We deliver value to shareholders, companies, and investors alike at the highest level of excellence.

Our mission is to improve the way startup employees are paid by unlocking the value of their equity compensation in a way that benefits all key players: the shareholder, the company, and the investor.

Employees should have the opportunity to share in the value they create for their company's shareholders.

This must be accomplished in a manner that keeps the focus on company growth, the number one priority for all stakeholders.

Investors that previously couldn't access late-stage private companies due to investment minimums, can now invest in private growth companies.

EquityZen is backed by leading venture capital investors (Dave McClure's 500 Startups, WorldQuant Ventures to name a couple), sovereign wealth funds, family offices, wealth managers, and influential investors from Finance, Venture, Law around the world.

Investments in private placements holding pre-IPO companies are speculative, illiquid, and carry a high degree of risk, including loss of principal. Investments made on the EquityZen platform are made through pooled investment vehicles, which acquire shares of private technology companies, and are not direct investments in these companies.
