EquityZen Launches Investment Platform for Established Private Companies
Atish Davda | July 15, 2013
EquityZen is proud to announce a new investment platform where
investors gain exclusive access to private growth companies. We connect shareholders of private firms with
investors seeking alternative investments. You may request more information here.
Fundraising for upstarts is expanding rapidly beyond offline private angel investments to a broader set of accredited investors
with the advent of websites like AngelList and Indiegogo. Despite the SEC’s deliberate pace in finalizing
legislation, the JOBS Act has ignited a movement in democratizing access to capital for small firms. While access to angel investments continues to grow, the market for secondary market investments in private growth companies does not provide adequate access to investors.
By connecting private company shareholders with eligible investors,
EquityZen is democratizing access to
attractive investments for accredited investors. Current solutions offer
investments at the seed stage, when a typical start-up is evaluating product
market fit. Instead, EquityZen focuses
on offering access to private firms that have passed the nascent stages, and
are in the growth phase.
EquityZen welcomes the SEC’s recent legislation on marketing private offerings, and is delighted to offer in
private beta, our investment platform. Accredited
investors may submit a free qualification request here.
