Access Private Investments

EquityZen provides alternative investment opportunities in late-stage private technology companies. Now, accredited investors can get access to pre-IPO companies and proven startups.

Typically, private investment opportunities were hard to find and curate for the average accredited investor. EquityZen works with private company shareholders to provide a range of investment offerings.

We buy shares from current shareholders in leading tech companies.

Our current investor clients include:

  • Angel Investors
  • High Net Worth Individuals (HNWIs)
  • Family Offices
  • Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs)

How it works

Register as an Investor

Sign up as an investor and verify your accreditation status to gain access to the platform. Please note that you must meet the SEC’s definition of an “Accredited Investor” in order to view our offerings.

Indicate Interest

Use the search box and filters to browse our preview offerings on the listings page and indicate your interest.

Reserve your investment

After adequate investment interest in preview, offerings go live and we begin accepting reservations. Review the offering document, then sign a non-binding term sheet online via HelloSign to reserve your investment.

Complete final paperwork online

Once reservations are filled, you'll be asked to execute the final paperwork online and provide bank information. During this period, we will work with the company and the shareholder to complete the transaction.

EquityZen will keep you abreast of any important investment updates via e-mail. Once the deal is approved, we will initiate a money transfer via ACH.

Track your Investments

All executed investment paperwork is available through the EquityZen platform. We will provide periodic updates related to news about the company. In addition, our third-party fund administrator will send your relevant tax forms related to your investment.

If the company IPOs or is acquired, we will distribute the cash/shares to you.
