Private Markets for the Public // Pre-IPO Stock Marketplace

EquityZen is a marketplace for private investments, with over $4 billion in equity value for sale in pre-IPO companies.

Our mission is to improve the way startup employees are paid by unlocking the value of their equity compensation in a way that benefits all key players: the shareholder, the company, and the investor.

As companies stay private longer, the growing private markets need a secondary liquidity pressure value, which is what we're building.

We've been covered in tech and financial media, including Yahoo! Finance, CNBC, Business Insider, TechCrunch, and Crain's.
