We're building private markets for the public.

EquityZen helps shareholders sell their equity for cash, with company approval, even while the company is still private. We believe employees and investors deserve the right to realize the value they have helped create.

Access to such alternative investments used to be reserved only for those few who could write $10M+ checks. By leveraging technology and market expertise, our platform provides accredited investors access to pre-IPO, late stage technology investments at reasonable minimums via our investment funds.
