The company is an early-mid growth start-up that saw the problems that SMEs and small businesses had in finding affordable, suitable sources of financing, whatever their objectives. Essentially, instead of going to big 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 governement, who have introduced a scheme that automatically refers SMEs that have had their finance applications to big banks turned down, meaning this company gets access to inbound requests worth £4.5 billion per year. The company is going from strength to strength with its 2016 revenues growing six-fold from 2015.
