Next Street looks for companies in the $5 million to $60 million range with the potential for significant growth. To realize this potential, we provide far more than access to capital. We work side-by-side with the business owner, advising on every aspect of the enterprise: business strategy, organizational development, and marketing.
The capabilities that we bring to urban companies are the ones that business owners tell us they need as their companies grow. The firm is organized in teams of specialists in organizational development, business strategy, marketing communications and finance. This professional depth enables us to help our clients navigate a rapidly evolving marketplace.
