About Us

Founders First Capital Partners provides access to the critical capital businesses need to unlock their economic potential.

Empowering Underrepresented Businesses

Founders First Capital Partners is building a comprehensive ecosystem through its proprietary platform to empower underrepresented founders to become leading premium wage job creators within their communities.

We provide revenue-based funding and advisory services to service-based small businesses located outside of major capital markets.

Celebrating Inclusivity

We support inclusive businesses including those led by women, people of color, LGBTQ+, military veterans, diverse teams and businesses located in low to moderate-income areas.

Our proprietary expansion advisory programs and growth methodologies guide these underserved service-based businesses to realize the growth potential ahead of them. 

Success Driven Programs

Our coaches, advisors and experienced team provide customized support, resources and recommendations to help the company set and achieve their goals.
