Funding Journey

Once you have registered (this is a quick and simple process) then you will go through our unique business funding matching process. At the end of this simple process you will be shown those funders who are the best to match your business and where their products will be suitable for your requirements.

There are more than 140 products on the platform, each with different pricing models and several being “risk based”, so requiring an Application to enable pricing to be provided.  You are of course free to make applications and obtain pricing from more than one funder, so that you have comparable quotes.

Once you have selected (or have asked our team to select) some funders will in turn make contact with you. As part of our service level agreements with funders they are asked to try several times in an unobtrusive manner to contact you. However, if after a few days that are unable to make contact they will stop. If you select multiple funders then you might expect to receive a larger number of contacts in the initial stages of the process.

There are more than 140 products on the platform. Each one of these funders will have a slightly different funding model. Some may be able to provide funding in hours or days. However, some may need longer periods of due diligence and this might mean waiting a week or more for a successful funding.

Our funders have funding from a variety of sources including Venture Capitalists, Peer to Peer, the British Business Bank, the funders shareholders and their own balance sheet.

Our funders offer many different products, which have different terms and conditions, you will need to look at those terms, but many of them do offer loans without an “Early Redemption Charge”, essentially enabling you to repay early without any penalty.
