Title: Buying SpaceX through EquityZen
Post by: Zombie Burger on December 24, 2020, 09:38:32 AM
Has anyone purchased shares of private companies through EquityZen? I am interested in investing in SpaceX; although there are no shares available right now, I was thinking about setting up an account, and putting them on a watchlist should any become available during their next funding round.

I though only big kahunas were involved in SpaceX?

Interestingly, someone (not me) posted a related question on Reddit just a few days ago:

Someone knowledgeable responded and linked another useful thread. Basically, it sounds like EquityZen has SpaceX listed, but never has any shares available. However, a similar firm called MicroVentures does.

So, I guess I should revise my original question... does anyone here have experience with MicroVentures?
