Who should consider a managed fund investment?

If you believe in the power of the EquityZen platform for sourcing strong deal flow and you believe in the pre-IPO asset class, but you are not comfortable or otherwise do not want to select single names for investment, you should consider a managed fund investment. The Fund Series investment committee will select all investments, which are a curated subset of what comes across the EquityZen platform.

If you would like your investment to give you diversified exposure to the pre-IPO asset class, but can't commit to multiple investments of $20,000, you should consider a managed fund. You will get investment exposure to multiple pre-IPO companies that are carefully selected by the Fund Series investment committee.


Companies are staying private for longer

Value creation in technology-enabled companies is increasingly occurring in the private markets. In 2004, companies typically went public after 4 years, today the average company IPOs after 10+ years.

Until recently, access to this asset class has been limited to large institutions.
