The growth partners of choice for diverse-led businesses.

Founders First Capital Partners was formed to support businesses led by women, people of color, LGBTQ+, military veterans and businesses in low to moderate income areas by providing revenue-based funding and acceleration services.

What is revenue-based funding?
Why choose this business loan?

This allows for a smaller payment during slower revenue months and larger payments in stronger months.

Revenue-Based Financing is more flexible than traditional bank debt with no equity dilution. Similar to a term loan format, we take a percentage of revenue every month, instead of a fixed payment.

Flexible Payments

Payments vary depending on monthly revenue. Our facilities are sensitive to the fluctuations in your business.

Retain Control

You keep full control of your company. Our facilities are non-dilutive.

Founder Friendly

Unlike bank loans and venture capital, RBF doesn’t require specific personal credit score or business experience.

Investing In Your Success

As diverse entrepreneurs ourselves, we’ve been in your shoes and you can leverage that experience to help you succeed. We don’t just give you the money. We provide ongoing funding, support and services to help you to grow.

 

We focus on funding and growing service-based companies generating $500,000 to $10 million in annual revenues. Over 80% of our investments are to company’s led by diverse founders including people of color, women, LGBTQ+ and military veterans.

Real business leaders.
Real success stories.
