Introducing the Main Street Initiative

In light of the recent state shutdown and pending impact of Coronavirus on small, brick and mortar businesses across the region, MainVest is committed to help small businesses weather the immediate and longer-term challenges to operations.

Phase One: Starting today, MainVest is offering a $2,000 zero interest cash infusion to small businesses affected by the shutdown, in tandem with supplying a platform for businesses to receive local investment from their supporting communities.  

Apply for the Main Street Initiative

When you start a capital raise of any amount on MainVest, we’ll immediately provide $2,000 in a capital infusion to assist with challenges over the next few weeks. You’ll also be set up with the infrastructure to secure $10,000 to $100,000 in investment from your local community, to provide longer term relief down the road.

  • Cost of Capital: Set by you to ensure terms work with your business plan while providing the community a clear path to investing locally.

  • Flexible Repayment: Repayment tied to revenue, not monthly lump payments, so you have the flexibility to weather the storm.

  • Community Backing: Your customers want you to succeed, give them a way to support you immediately, not in the future.

  • Investment, not donations: Allow supporters to take an active role in your recovery without asking for a hand out and reward them once you’re back up and running.

  • No personal guarantee: We believe that entrepreneurs shouldn’t have to risk their personal financial security when building a business with the support of their community.

To get started, tell us a little bit about your business and capital needs, and we will get you set up for a fundraising campaign.
