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 put the needs of business owners first. They recognized that many banks weren’t lending to small businesses, which often forced business owners to work with unscrupulous lenders to grow their business. As military veterans, they believed that American business owners deserved business funding options that are fair and honest.
Their vision became the mission of StreetShares: Bring trusted digital finance to America’s heroes.
The StreetShares team lives by a core set of values: Integrity, Member Service, Excellence, and Innovation. We offer a suite of specialty finance products to our small business members including business loans and lines of credit. StreetShares is proudly veteran-run and located outside of Washington, D.C.
