Ubuntu is a Debian-based open source Linux operating system for PC, tablet, phone, and cloud platforms. It is free to use, share, and develop. Ubuntu has nine flavors and dozens of localized and specialized derivatives. There are also special editions for servers, OpenStack clouds, and mobile devices. All editions share common infrastructure and software. Ubuntu is funded through a portfolio of services provided by [Canonical](https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/canonical-ltd). It is a shared work between Canonical, other companies, and the thousands of volunteers who involve in its development. The first official Ubuntu release, Version 4.10, codenamed the ‘Warty Warthog’, was launched in October 2004 by Mark Shuttleworth. Ubuntu’s operations are headquartered in London, United Kingdom.

How to invest in Ubuntu stock?

Accredited investors can buy pre-IPO stock in companies like Ubuntu through EquityZen funds. These investments are made available by existing Ubuntu shareholders who sell their shares on our platform. Typically, these are early employees who need to fund a life event – house, education, etc. Accredited investors are then offered the opportunity to invest in this stock through a fund, like those used by hedge funds serving large investors. While not without risk, investing in private companies can help investors reach goals of portfolio diversification, access to potential growth and high potential return.

If I invest, how do I exit my investment?

There are two ways to exit your private company investment on EquityZen's marketplace. The first is if the company has an exit event like an IPO, merger or acquisition. In that case, we will distribute the shares and/or cash to you directly. The second way is through an Express Deal on EquityZen, if eligible. An Express Deal allows you to sell your allocation of private shares in a given private company to another investor on EquityZen's marketplace. More information on Express Deals can be found here and exit information can be found here.
