OverviewSuggest Edit

Fundation Group LLC is one of the nation’s leading lenders to small and medium sized businesses nationwide. We conduct our business activities along two principal business lines – Direct Lending, where we deliver conventional loans to businesses through our website and referral partners, and Partnerships, where we develop varying solutions with our strategic partners to bring credit products to their customer base.

Our Direct Lending business offers the equivalent of a bank loan but through a technology enabled process that can deliver capital in as little as 3 business days. Our products are fixed rate, ‘simple interest’ loans, meaning they do not penalize customers for prepaying the loan. Because we use our own capital, we lend to businesses with varying credit profiles and for various purposes – working capital, inventory, capital improvements, equipment purchases, expansion of facilities, acquisitions and ownership related events.

Our flexible lending model and flexible technology platform allows us to build outstanding relationships in our Partnerships business. We partner with vendors of supplies, equipment, and services, online service providers and software providers, banks and other financial institutions. In each partnership, we customize our product offering and our delivery model to meet the needs of each unique partner and its customers. Our partnerships range from customized vendor financing programs, to software integrations, to cross-sell through coordinated marketing programs.
We are always seeking outstanding professionals to join our team. This is your chance to have a seat at the forefront of the rapidly evolving lending markets enabled by technology, analytics and business process automation. We seek to hire individuals that share our core values of teamwork, integrity, a commitment to customer experience and a mindset for execution.
