Explore Pre-IPO Tech Companies

New investors get half off their first investment minimum.

Access to private companies has been dominated by VC firms and the ultra-wealthy for decades.

We're here to change that. 

EquityZen connects shareholders of private tech companies who want to sell their stock to accredited investors looking to access the private market. 

Here's how it works.


Shareholders Sell Shares to EquityZen

Shareholders summit their shares to EquityZen. We conduct due diligence, and place the shares in an investment vehicle.


The Deal Goes Live

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


Proceeds Are Distributed

If the company gets acquired or goes public, shares or cash are distributed to investors.

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 early stage technology companies has almost disappeared from the public market. The average US tech company is worth $1B by the time of the IPO!

... and investors are missing out.

Capital invested in private tech companies grew from $11 billion in 2005 to $75 billion in 2015 and almost tripled from 2013 to 2015. 

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

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

As a result, more value is taking place in the private market.

With EquityZen, you can access proven pre-IPO tech companies while they are still public.
