Minyanville Media, Inc. was an Internet-based financial media and publishing company.

Investment/business articles and broadcasts were available directly on its website, and via licensing agreements with major financial websites that include Yahoo Finance, MSN Money, AOL Money & Finance and MarketWatch. More than 40 financial professionals publish bylined articles on Minyanville;[1] the company also provides subscription publications with market-specific analysis. Its website receives some 1,000,000 Unique Visitors per month, and is in the top 4,000 websites in the U.S.[2] Minyanville's content has earned an Emmy for Business and Financial Reporting for its web show "Minyanville's World in Review with Hoofy and Boo".[3]

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]
