Our Competitors raised VC. We kept 100% and doubled MRR w/ Founderpath

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.

We had a 7 figure wire in our bank in under a week

After interviewing 23 lenders - it was wonderful to meet Founder Path. Their terms, process and understanding of speed was simply incomparable. Within 1 week we had completed diligence (and we aren't a small SaaS company). A few days later a seven figure wire hit our bank account and we were able to turn on the growth engine! In a nut shell, this is how lending should be done - great terms, super fast diligence and super fast to close.
