John Borchers is the Co-Founder and Managing Director at Decathlon Capital Partners, the largest revenue-based financing investment firm in the United States. Borchers founded Decathlon in 2011, to advance the mission of democratizing access to growth-stage capital. Borchers saw that current equity-based funding models were inherently misaligned with the interests of business owners, and that too few companies were able to access growth funding on reasonable terms, with reasonable expectations. Prior to joining Decathlon Capital, Borchers was a General Partner at Crescendo Ventures, playing a leading role in developing the firm’s international presence in Europe. Borchers also worked in the data warehousing and predictive analytics fields where he held various operational roles including a two-year posting to Sydney, Australia, where he opened the first Asia Pacific office for a U.S.-based data warehousing firm. Borchers holds an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.S. from the University of Richmond.
