The Main Street Capital Partnership is a collection of technology-driven financial services institutions that provide efficient, responsible funding to small businesses across America. We utilize the latest innovations to fill the credit gap, giving our nation’s entrepreneurs the means to grow their companies and create more American jobs.
Supporting American Small Businesses
We are laser focused on the needs of our clients – restaurants, contractors, auto repair shops and small manufactures to name a few. While they may not have “dot com” attached to their name, or reside in Silicon Valley, these small businessmen and women are the bedrock of the American economy. Our products enable them to continue to be the engines of economic growth and opportunity in every part of the country, which is why online alternative finance must be a part of any lending ecosystem.
Following the financial crisis, the regulatory environment became much more difficult for American small businesses. For example, a recent Federal Reserve study found independent business owners spent thirty-three hours on average filling out paperwork. Moreover, that same study revealed that even after going through this rigorous process, most companies received only half of the funds they requested. The Main Street Capital Partnership supports policies that will create an environment to encourage innovation, reduce regulation and recognize the critical differences between the commercial and consumer sectors. Our mission is to bring together like-minded technology-driven finance companies that support these critical public policy goals.
