Our Story

Today’s small business owners face a very different environment than that experienced by America's 'greatest generation', post-World War II. Thanks to strict lending laws and big bank consolidation, getting a bank loan is extremely difficult and time consuming. Throw in the majority of online business loan options, and the situation becomes too expensive.

In 2013, StreetShares co-founders, Mark Rockefeller and Mickey Konson, met for breakfast at a local diner to develop a new business funding option that had the needs of everyday business owners in mind. The founding team had one vision: to breathe new life into the American Dream. And StreetShares, America's small business funding community, was born.

StreetShares offers unique financial solutions for America's heroes and their communities. StreetShares' technology captures the social loyalty that exists within the military community and harnesses that trust to lower risk in financial transactions. StreetShares provides a suite of specialty finance products focused on the military and veterans market, including small business funding, lines of credit, and alternatives to VA small business loans for vet-owned businesses. StreetShares is also a factoring company offering invoice factoring and account receivables financing for the government contract (GovCon) community, as well as the StreetShares Patriot Express® program. StreetShares offers alternative investments, including a veterans social-impact investing product called Veteran Business Bonds. StreetShares is veteran-run and located outside of Washington, D.C.
