About us

What is Manhattan Street Capital?

We help companies raise capital by listing their offerings on Manhattan Street Capital, by providing our easy to use Invest Now system, to make successful Regulation A+ offerings.

We have launched the ManhattanStreet-ICO(TM) Program which combines Reg A+ and Reg D with Initial Coin Offerings (ICO), in order to help our companies conform to US Securities regulations.

Large Real Estate projects are well suited to Reg A+ and can raise more than $400 mill per year with Reg A+, as can VC Funds

We offer our RegA+Audition(TM) market testing program so companies can test how appealing they are to investors rapidly and at low cost before embarking on a Reg A+ offering.

Manhattan Street helps companies assess if Reg A+ (and in select cases, Reg D) is a good fit for their business and capital needs.

We see great potential for IoT companies, especially those that build on the Amazon Alexa IoT standard.

AR and VR companies are among our favorites. Apple's ARKit will help greatly.

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

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

We introduce our companies to investment banks, underwriters, broker-dealer syndicates, valuation experts, auditors, and marketing agencies as needed for success. 

Our mission

Our goal is to build on the inherent potential of Regulation A+ to become the market share leading online capital raising platform for Reg A+ offerings. We hope to extend Reg A+ up to full IPOs to the NASDAQ and NYSE. We believe that when Reg A+ hits its stride it will become a $60 bill per year capital market. We provide focus and services targetted at the sweet spot for Reg A+; which is mid-stage companies that are too far along for Venture Capital and too small for Private Equity or a traditional IPO.

We were the first Reg A+ capital 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.

We love the fact that online capital raising is all about the merit of the ideas, the team, and the market, not about ethnicity or gender. The online process lends itself to transparency, efficiency, and fairness.
