What is Manhattan Street Capital?

Manhattan Street Capital is the #1 growth capital marketplace for mid-sized companies, real estate projects, and mature startups.

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

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 to actively raise capital. We also:

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

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

We have developed Proprietary AI technology that we use in 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. 

Our mission

Manhattan Street Capital is the #1 Growth Capital marketplace that enables mid-sized companies, large real estate projects 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 mill (far more in some circumstances) per company/year of growth capital by providing a rule system for them to sell their equity and debt 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.
