INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Streetable'

For a company, being "streetable" means that it is of high enough quality to have the respect of The Street. Although individuals are the ones who come to eventually own companies (either directly or through mutual funds), a company must first impress the investment bankers and those on Wall Street to make it to the market.

This term was sent by Greg Bohlen, managing director of Wasatch Advisors Venture Investments.
