About us

What is Manhattan Street Capital?

Manhattan Street Capital is the #1 growth capital marketplace for mid sized companies and mature startups.

We help companies raise capital by providing them with and connecting them to the services and information that are needed for them to make successful Regulation A+ offerings, and we list their offerings on this website.

We help companies assess if their business is a good fit for Reg A+.  

We advise our companies through the process in order to increase the success and efficiency of offerings listed on our platform. 

We Specialize in Reg A+. We avoid cluttering our website with other types of Equity Crowdfunding with their very different rules.

We have developed Proprietary technology that we use in key ways within our website to improve the efficiency of the capital raising process on Manhattan Street Capital.

We are building our Research Analyst Service, to provide Research coverage for our companies after their offering has been completed.

For services that we do not provide, we introduce our companies to service providers such as investment banks, underwriters, broker dealer syndicates, valuation experts, auditors, marketing agencies and more. 

Manhattan Street Capital is not an investment bank; it is not a Broker Dealer. We do not structure deals, and we do not match investors to offerings. We do not solicit investments.

Our mission

Manhattan Street Capital is the #1 Growth Capital marketplace that enables mid sized companies and mature startups to raise growth capital by leveraging SEC’s Regulation A+ (or Reg A+). 

Reg A+ makes it possible for US and Canadian headquartered companies to raise $4 M to $50 M/company/year of growth capital by providing a rule system for them to sell their equity to main street investors worldwide.

We were the first Reg A+ fund raising platform to launch in May of 2015 - we initially launched under the name Fund Athena. We subsequently expanded our scope and renamed the company Manhattan Street Capital. Fund Athena continues as a major program in which we provide extra services to businesses led by women.
