Our software platform streamlines investments in urban technologies by providing transparency for investors and automated onboarding for startups.
Cities have become home for the majority of people on the planet. Meanwhile, the innovators and entrepreneurs are changing the way our cities are both used and built - from reducing construction costs, improving energy and water consumption to eliminating the need for parking spaces.
But today it is too hard for startups to access capital. At the same time, we meet a growing universe of investors who are looking for new types of investment opportunities. Perl Street's goal is to make it easy for entrepreneurs and investors to connect and work together.
We believe the current process of raising capital is a major distraction and cost to urban technology startups. Instead of focusing on delivering value to their customers and building innovative products and teams, startups spend much of their limited resources and time on sourcing capital, negotiating deal terms, drafting legal contracts and navigating complex and lengthy due diligence processes.
We believe technology can address these problems, and that is why we are building software that reduces the friction of raising capital and facilitates a new marketplace.
