River SaaS Capital Reviews

I took $1m at my last SaaS company before our exit. We kept more equity and made more money when we exited.

We had several growth tactics we wanted to try going into Q3 of 2022. As we started executing and growing, we got an M&A offer we couldn't refuse. The extra cash in our bank gave us more confidence going into the negotiation. We got a higher valuation and closed last month. Founderpath's capital was hugely strategic during our M&A process. They let us pay off early without paying any fines once we finalized our acquisition," Josh, SaaS Founder

Founderpath is awesome

We first took Founderpath capital back in May 2021. Since then, we've nearly doubled our MRR and kept 100% equity. We're in a competitive space (customer support SaaS) with competitors who are raising tons of VC. It makes me happy inside that I'm able to compete with them, while keeping all our equity. Founderpath helps us grow faster without dilution.

Longer terms than others, & a personal touch

I've had dealings with Pipe and Capchase, and Founderpath has been the best experience. You aren't just dealing with a sales rep who then hands you off to someone else who hands you off to someone else. Founderpath has a more personal touch.They also have longer and more flexible terms, allowing you to pay off early if needed without penalty like the others.Overall, a great experience.Note that Discount Rate isn't the same as APR you get with a bank loan, so don't compare them apples-to-apples. All these companies use Discount Rate which ends up converting to ~2x APR, so bear that in mind when making decisions.
