We’ve partnered with business finance marketplace Funding Options to help scale-ups and SMEs access growth funding in a fast, frictionless manner.
With a roster of more than 200 lenders, Funding Options is the leading marketplace for business finance, with the ability to help businesses access lower-cost funding solutions quickly.
So quickly, in fact, that Funding Options’ record for application to approval is under three minutes. And now, we’re teaming up to remove the bureaucracy and delay from securing vital funds, using Funding Options’ platform to source debt-based products for ambitious scale-ups and SMEs in need of working capital.
Funding Options’ technology uses a unique algorithm and open banking to match companies with suitable lending options. And as we use it, we’ll be able to help businesses access loans suited to their size and needs from a variety of alternative and mainstream lenders – offering products such as revolving credit facilities, merchant cash advance, invoice discounting and asset finance.
