VC’s take forever to pitch, make you give up 15% equity, and require board meetings. Founderpath offers:
Founder of Solvemate
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.
I’m Nathan. I launched a SaaS company when I was 19 and raised a seed round from a billionaire.
How it works?
We give you capital by turning your MRR into upfront cash
Founder of Satori Reporting
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.
