Two weeks, two major upgrades to the user experience for our clients. Clearly we aren’t experiencing the dreaded “summer slowdown” here at EquityZen.
Last week we highlighted the fact that all Term Sheets can now be executed directly on the EquityZen platform, eliminating the need to e-mail you a link to the documents. This week, we are (even more?) excited to highlight a new feature that allows you to see all of the investments you’ve made on the EquityZen platform and how much is allocated to each investment.
The new “My Portfolio” page is meant to provide with an overall snapshot into all the pre-IPO investments you have made through EquityZen and help you better understand your portfolio. It provides you with relative weightings for each of your investments and also provides the amount invested both on an individual and aggregate basis. If there are other metrics you would like to see, feel free to e-mail us and let us know!
