EquityZen connects shareholders of private technology companies who want to sell their pre-IPO stock to accredited investors looking to access the private market through an EquityZen fund. Here's how it works:


Shareholders submit their pre-IPO shares to EquityZen. We conduct due diligence and place the shares in an investment vehicle.


We open up the offering live to investors who purchased an interest in the investment vehicle.


If the company gets acquired or goes public, shares or cash will be distributed to investors.*

*Note that not all pre-IPO companies will go public or get acquired, and not all IPOs or acquisitions will result in successful investments

Tech companies are staying private for longer...


The average time for US tech companies to go public has risen from 4 years in 1999 to 10+ years today.


This means that access to late-stage technology companies have disappeared from the public market. The average US tech company is worth $1B by the time of the IPO!

... and investors are missing out.

Six companies went public with $10 billion valuations between 2004 and 2015. Even more have gone public since then.

Public markets are losing IPO candidates when promising companies choose to stay private longer.

As a result, more value is taking place in the private market. The average US tech company is worth $1B by the time of the IPO!

With EquityZen, you can access proven pre-IPO tech companies while they are still private through our EquityZen fund.
