Happy Thanksgiving from EquityZen
Ketan Bhalla | November 24, 2016
Keeping with EquityZen tradition, we'd like to take a few moments to reflect on the past year and share a few things we are thankful for as we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. EquityZen hit some major milestones in 2016, including completing over 1,000 transactions in over 50 companies. We believe it was a transformative year for the company and the private markets as a whole.
Further development of the private markets
The EquityZen team
has worked tirelessly this year to improve our investment platform and spread the EquityZen gospel. We overhauled many aspects of our platform, dubbing 2016 the year of "EquityZen 2.0"
, and have greatly improved the experience for investors, shareholders, and companies alike. We've taken great strides to make buying and selling private shares simpler and more transparent, and in recognition of this we were featured in two case studies this year from HelloSign
(two awesome products that we have integrated to make transactions simpler and faster). We also pounded the pavement to raise awareness about private markets, presenting at industry conferences such as Finovate
. All of this was truly a team effort and we are proud of the hard work and dedication of our team.
We are grateful to all of the many, many clients that we interacted with this year. The feedback, both good and bad, has been invaluable as we continue to work towards our goal of modernizing and developing our private investment platform. Ultimately all of the effort and hard work we put in is meant to serve you, so we hope we have been able to exceed your expectations. We hope the process was seamless, quick, and informative.
On behalf of the entire team at EquityZen, we wish you and your loved ones a Happy Thanksgiving.
