The Growth Partner of Choice for Diverse Led Businesses

Founders First Capital Partners was formed to support businesses led by women, people of color, LGBTQ+, military veterans, as well as inclusive teams and businesses located in low to moderate income areas. We provide revenue-based funding and business acceleration advisory support to small businesses.

Preferred Partner Program


Founders First leans on brokers and other referral partners to connect us with diverse business owners who would benefit from our non-dilutive growth capital options. Exclusive partner benefits include:

  • Dedicated Relationship Manager to review and discuss referrals.
  • Access to complimentary financial coaching assessment for your clients. 
  • Referrals to other lenders within our network to find a lending solution based on your clients’ needs. 

Flexible Funding Options for Your Clients

Revenue-Based Financing is more flexible than traditional bank debt with no equity dilution. Instead of a fixed payment every month, we take a predetermined percentage of revenue. This allows for a smaller payment during slower revenue months, and larger payments in stronger months. For clients who would rather have a set payment every month, there are Term loans available. All loans are based on the growth of the company’s profit margins and strength of recurring revenue, if applicable.
