EquityZen Top Trending Companies List - August 2016*
Last month, we debuted our Top Trending Companies
list, sharing with our investor base some insights into user activity on our platform. Here is the updated list based on activity from August 1 to August 31.
Blue Apron, DocuSign, Instacart, Jet.com, MongoDB, Nutanix, Palantir, Sonos, Spotify, Sprinklr, Stripe
As a reminder, the list is derived from activity by both non-registered users (let's call them "Browsers") as well as verified EquityZen investors ("Investors"). A few observations:
- 7 of the 11 companies are new to the Top Trending list (Blue Apron, DocuSign, Instacart, and Jet.com are the holdovers from July)
- Spotify was the most popular name amongst Investors
- After Jet.com, Stripe was most popular amongst Browsers
- Amongst the top names, Sprinklr's position on the list rose the most from a month ago

*A summary of our methodology: We looked at a number of user activity factors relating to search terms and page views before a visit to, or while on, EquityZen.com. We then analyzed the data using a combination of Google search and proprietary tools, weighting the factors to fairly compare activity of non-registered users with registered investors.
