EquityZen today has announced a new strategic partnership with AST Private Company Solutions™ (AST PCS). Users of PCS’s recently launched Astrella™ capitalization (cap) table and ownership data management platform will have access to the new integration to seamlessly process company approved secondary transactions.

Astrella was developed by AST PCS, the Silicon Valley-based business unit of ownership data management leader AST, using transformative technology to build a new cloud-based software-as-a service (SaaS) platform. The solution brings together private blockchain technology, artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics to catapult the space forward. Astrella is built with an API ecosystem to allow seamless integration with leading providers like EquityZen, whose secondary platform addresses an important liquidity need faced by private companies and their shareholders. 

“AST has been a leader in providing tech-enabled tools to companies and their stakeholders for decades and EquityZen is proud to partner with them to provide liquidity solutions to private companies and their shareholders,” says EquityZen’s CEO, Atish Davda.  “Since 2013, EquityZen has worked with over 200 late-stage private companies and their shareholders on company approved secondary transactions. We look forward to working with AST to make this process simpler and more streamlined for all market participants.”

AST PCS President Carine Schneider adds, “AST is thrilled to partner with EquityZen, a true leader in the private company secondary space.  The reputation and trust they’ve built with private companies along with the strength of their technology platform made them a natural fit as a partner.  As companies stay private longer than ever, the liquidity needs of shareholders has become even more prevalent.  We look forward to serving these shareholders in an efficient and seamless manner through our API tool with EquityZen.”
