What our customers are saying.
“When I landed on the Paintbrush website, I saw the goal. I thought, this is builders trying to support builders and they understand that it's hard to get started.”
“Paintbrush really fits me because I've always held a W-2 job. I was never really willing to take that leap to running my business full-time. I like the optionality. So when I found Paintbrush it was a perfect fit for me.”
"What really spoke to me about the Paintbrush Loan is that it’s favorable to founders. If I had gone the traditional route, I can't say I would have gotten this much attention. It's tough building something from the ground up. And just knowing that your lender is there for you means a whole lot."
"When we were looking for a loan, all these lenders advertise that they lend to startups but they don’t actually lend to early-stage startups. We got denied a few times. Then we found Paintbrush and we were a perfect fit.”
"It was very easy, very simple. Limited paperwork and quick process, which was breathtaking compared to some of the hoops you jump through with other lenders. I just appreciate Paintbrush making it so simple, especially in today's world."
