At EquityZen, our mission is to improve the way start-up employees are paid by unlocking the value of their equity compensation in a way that benefits the shareholder, the company and the investor.

Until recently, access to liquidity for start-up employees and access to pre-IPO investments has been limited. EquityZen believes employees and investors deserve the right to realize the value they have helped create. EquityZen helps shareholders sell their equity for cash, with company approval, even while the company is still private. By leveraging technology and market expertise, the company's platform provides accredited investors with access at reasonable minimums via investment funds.
