Are you a military spouse or veteran entrepreneur with a startup company? You may have discovered that many banks aren’t lending to small businesses. This often forces you, the business owner to work with unscrupulous lenders to grow your business.

To solve this problem, veterans Mark Rockefeller and Mickey Konson developed a new business funding option that put the needs of business owners first. As military veterans, they believed that American business owners deserved business funding options that were fair and honest.

The two believed that America’s heroes needed access to trusted digital finance, and StreetShares was born.

In an enjoyable and informative conversation, Mark explained how StreetShares can help fund the visions of veteran and military spouse entrepreneurs.
