Exactly the type of funding we were looking for

Founderpath has been a perfect avenue for our short-term cash needs. Instead of the "traditional" process with all the headaches, Nathan and his team made it really easy for us to fund additional development resources in order to get our next version to market sooner than planned. We take cash as we need it and repay it quickly based on the customer run rate. As an equity owner, not having to give up equity in exchange for funds is exactly what our company was looking for. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Founderpath as a viable funding option.
