The Company

The company is an exciting start-up that saw the problems that SMEs and small businesses had in finding affordable, suitable sources of financing, whatever their objectives. Instead of going to monopoly banks unwilling to lend, why can’t companies find financing online like people search for holidays and car insurance?

The company is partnered with the government, who have introduced a scheme that automatically refers SMEs that have had their finance applications to big banks turned down. Given that the banks reject £4.5bn per year in commercial loans; this is a significant inbound channel. The company is going from strength to strength with its 2016 revenues growing six-fold from 2015.

Using financial technology combined with an expert team of Account Managers, the firm has helped thousands of SMEs to find financing. In terms of lenders, they have a range of options from auction markets places, venture capital, challenger banks, asset managers and even larger high street banks themselves.

With revenues multiplying year on year, and the commercial team set to treble in size, this is an exciting time to join the company!
