Cool stuff I’m working on…

Obtaining financing from banks has its benefits, but funding options can be limited and require lots of documentation, credit checks, and more. Founder Funders leverages a vast network of direct funders to find the most appropriate financing solution to fit your unique circumstance. We source debt capital for numerous funding needs including business expansion, working capital, inventory, bridge loans, real estate acquisition, new construction, and more. Funding amounts across our various funding options range from $5,000 to over $1B+

“David just made such a huge impact on my business. He furnished so many deliverables and they were all the things that I was struggling with. These were the things that I could not quite wrap my brain around and his deliverables were exactly what I needed and I didn’t not know that I needed them. He knew what we needed and I did not and that is where part of the confusion was in my head and he pretty much just gave it to me on a silver platter and said “Here is what you need to work on”. It has made a difference. I also appreciated that there was a lot of meaning behind the suggestions. It was not just empty words.”

Zach R, Louisiana Entrepreneur

“David Brim was awesome, he really hit the areas that would help us specifically know and reach the target clientele we are looking for. He also helped our branding and even made a new suggestion for the company domain name which I really liked and use now. The information provided was extremely valuable and has really shaped the future for my business. I’d work with David any time.”

Ron M, Florida Entrepreneur

“David’s work was really great. He showed us what we didn’t even know existed with regard to social media and marketing. The keyword research and help with Google Adwords was also awesome.”

Richard S, Michigan Entrepreneur

“David is great to work with, knowledgeable and helped us tremendously with improving our website and harnessing all the benefits of LinkedIn.”
