EquityZen is perfectly positioned to bring liquidity to an inherently illiquid investment class, a significant pain point for key employees and LP's alike.
After my initial contact with the founders at EquityZen, I was intrigued. Once I met the team in person, I was engaged with the demeanor, integrity and complimentary skill sets of the team. And now, having spent a lot more time with them, all of my initial impressions have been confirmed. This team is solid, brilliant and ready to expand.
I think EZ will start to become more embedded within the process private companies follow to manage their private stock (not only secondary transactions) and eventually re-define how this process is carried out all together (Eventually spilling to other private markets). A lot to be done here and EZ is on its way to leading the charge.
EquityZen caught my attention when I was investigating marketplaces for investing in start-ups. I liked the company's product and approach to providing liquidity for private equity. EquityZen has a chance to become a major trading platform in a big market with attractive business economics. The founders are smart, open-minded and focused on execution – moving fast to capture the market opportunity and build a world-class team.
EquityZen is unlocking one of the greatest untapped opportunities in the capital markets - the private company secondary equity market. Employees are desperate for cash, companies are desperate for control, and investors are in desperate need of access and stock liquidity. EquityZen solves this problem for all stakeholders through their innovative combination of technology and financial acumen. I invested in EquityZen because the founders have the vision and DNA to create a private stock market platform on a massive scale.
I get to come into work everyday to build and grow a market that never existed before. We're creating meaningful value for our clients, pushing the boundaries of FinTech, and working with some of the coolest companies around. That said, it's this team that makes EquityZen awesome.
Our A-class team is the main reason EquityZen is the fastest growing business in the industry. Everyone can be the CEO and have great latitude over their area of expertise, and we are all in it to learn a lot and to build a 100-year legacy.
