About Perl Street

Perl Street streamlines investments in technology and hardware projects by providing data driven transparency for investors and comprehensive fundraising guidance for startups.

We believe the current process of raising capital is a major distraction and cost to technology and hardware 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.
