About Fountain Partners

Fountain Partners is based in San Francisco, California and was founded in 2006. We are a specialty finance company whose mission is to be the most flexible, nimble and efficient source of equipment lease capital for growing businesses. We manage private credit funds that provide capital in the form of equipment leases to companies ranging from pre-revenue to publicly traded, across multiple sectors and industries.

We pride ourselves on our ability to support a company’s equipment leasing needs from infancy to maturity. We allow management teams to work with a financial partner that has the ability to scale alongside their business and accommodate their unique needs. Fountain brings capital, experience and creativity in order to efficiently structure both simple and more complex transactions.

With only one decision making layer, we make decisions quickly and stick to them. This drives our competitive advantage: the ability to quickly assess complex credit situations and structure transactions that provide value to our clients in the form of additional liquidity without the constraints that typically come with traditional forms of debt financing. In fact, we typically propose terms within 2 to 4 days after receiving a full credit package and having a one-hour call with management.
