Description

Who are we?

We want to help small businesses win. That’s why we’re here. 

We connect small business owners to investors – to create jobs, support local communities and power economies – because we believe that people are made to do more. And we want them to help realise their goals. 

So, we created the leading small business loan platform. Investors have lent £9.8 billion in 130,000 loans to 90,000 small business owners. In a single year, this lending unlocked 115,000 jobs and contributed £6.5 billion to the global economy. There’s never been a better time to join! 

Be part of the team that changes everything. Let’s build the place where small businesses can get the funding they need to win and leave a legacy behind, forever.
