Selling your equity used to be tough, but with EquityZen, getting cash for your private shares is simple — no mountains of paperwork.
Whether you’re an employee of a startup looking to diversify your portfolio or an angel investor seeking liquidity from an early investment, EquityZen can help you get the liquidity you deserve.
EquityZen helps you sell your Headspace shares to fund life’s biggest expenses: a new home, student loans, an engagement ring or even your dream car.
Headspace, originally launched in 2010 as an events company, is an online meditation and mindfulness organization that provides guided sessions to users via their mobile app and website. Their themed sessions include everything from stress and sleep to focus and anxiety.
In addition to serving individual consumers, Headspace has gained popularity in corporate wellness programs: in 2018, Headspace had 250 corporate clients, who cover the subscription cost for their employees, with expectations that number would grow to 500 or more by the end of the year.
Their primary competitor is Calm, another mobile-friendly meditation and mindfulness session startup, which reached a $1 billion valuation in early 2019. Calm is the top-grossing health and fitness app and #20 overall app on iOS while Headspace was the 7th highest-grossing health and fitness app and #103 overall according to App Annie, an app market data firm. In June 2017, Headspace confirmed its valuation of $320 million and that they currently generate over $100 million per year in revenue.
Create an account and take a quick survey about your holdings. This information is crucial to our process. From there, we will perform initial due diligence, begin a valuation analysis, and determine whether the company is a fit for our platform.
We will list the offering to gauge interest from our investor base and report back to you. This process typically takes two weeks, and the offering will be featured on our website and in our weekly investor newsletter during such time.
If there’s enough investor demand, we will work with the company to complete the transaction. Your sales proceeds will hit your account in 2-3 weeks from the completed transaction and voilà, your liquid!
