Grow your company with flexible financing

Founders First Capital Partners provides Revenue-Based Funding to help businesses grow and thrive. 

Grow Your Company With Flexible Financing

Founders First is the only revenue-based financing company exclusively for diverse founders.

Why Choose Revenue Based Financing?

Revenue-based financing (RBF) provides growth capital in exchange for a small fixed percentage of gross revenues. For diverse-led businesses, RBF can be the difference between success and failure, growing your business from 5 employees to 20, or bridging the gap to scale growth until you do get that equity investment at a far greater valuation and go on to change the world.
Flexible Payments
Payments vary depending on monthly revenue. If revenue slows down, the payments will be lower. If revenue is higher, it's repaid more quickly.​
Retain Control
Investment typically does it require board seats, personal guarantees, or equity warrants. You keep full control of your company.
Founder Friendly
Unlike bank loans and venture capital, it doesn’t require specific personal credit score or business experience.
