More than 40 financial professionals publish bylined articles on Minyanville;[1] the company also provides subscription publications with market-specific analysis.

Minyanville was started in 2002 by Todd Harrison, who had been a trader, fund manager, and senior executive on Wall Street, with such firms as Morgan Stanley and Galleon Group.[4] In July 2000, Harrison's first financial column appeared on TheStreet.com, which he wrote as a favor for a former colleague who was going on vacation. Harrison says his bearish commentary on tech stocks resonated with readers, and he soon became a featured columnist.[5]

In May 2014, Todd Harrison announced he was "looking for a new business model" stating the online media model is 'broken', and was putting Minyanville up for sale. Not necessarily to a competing media outfit, but ideally to a financial institution. Harrison is looking to turn Minyanville into an outlet that isn't depending on ads or chasing web traffic purely for traffic's sake [6]
