Switched from ClearCo to FounderPath for SaaS Specific Tools

I’d spent 12 years looking for a fair, transparent and easy to use debt funding option for my SaaS prior to finding Founderpath. Since testing them out almost a year ago, they’ve become not only our key financing option, but a trusted partner in medium term planning as well. The team is top notch, the terms are fair and transparent and the focus they put on bootstrapped SaaS founders is unwavering. Finally, I feel like I have a financier in my corner.
