EquityZen is an early-mid stage financial technology company, backed by leading private equity investors. We're looking for an intern to join our Marketplace team focusing on Deal Exits on a paid part-time basis for 15 hours per week. If you are interested in learning more about pre-IPO companies and what happens when they go through an exit, let’s talk!

Our platform enables large, private companies to deliver liquidity to their shareholders while providing investors access to invest in these proven, pre-IPO companies. EquityZen has served over 150 pre-IPO technology companies and is proud to be considered a liquidity provider for 1 out of 3 of the largest unicorns. A testament to EquityZen's secure, paperless, and industry-defining online investment platform, we have successfully completed 8500+ private placement transactions. Focusing on automating an antiquated offline process has allowed us to lead the charge in building more efficient, cost-effective, and transparent private markets.
