BIG NEWS! EquityZen Joins 500 Startups’ Fall Accelerator and First Growth Venture Network

Phil Haslett | September 25, 2013

Friends and partners of EquityZen: we’re excited to share the recent news! EquityZen was accepted into the 500 Startups fall accelerator program in California. 500 Startups is considered one of the top accelerators in America and we are thrilled to be a part of it!

The four-month program will provide us a fantastic network of mentors and advisors to improve our company, product,  and expand our footprint. At the conclusion of the program, we will participate in large-scale Demo Days in San Francisco, Mountain View, and New York City to showcase EquityZen’s growing private share marketplace.

Not ones to desert our New York roots, we have also been accepted into First Growth Venture Network, an accelerator network sponsored by leading law firm Lowenstein Sandler. EquityZen will be traveling back to the East Coast to stay in touch with our NYC friends and also to participate in FGVN's events that focus on cultivating the budding NYC startup scene: recent graduates include BirchBox, BaubleBar, and Adaptly.

Located in San Francisco or Silicon Valley? Give us a shout! We’d love to meet up.

Phil, Atish, and Shri
