Lighter Capital Reviews

Switched to Founderpath from Lighter Capital

Lighter Capital makes it hard and time consuming for founders to check and pay monthly settlements, they lack an easy-to-use UI , the process of getting an offer involves multiple docs, background checks and meetings while with Founderpath the process is seamless, easy and even fun with easy monthly repayment and no hidden fees or complex agreements.

No strings attached non-dilutive debt
