Why we do it

We helped pioneer revenue-based finance on our belief that funding could be a positive force for small businesses – but traditional options available were hard to access and inflexible.

Since then we’ve provided finance solutions that are more customised, intuitive and responsive to the ups and downs of their businesses.

We now deliver those solutions through service and software providers that businesses already use. So funding can be easily accessed via relationships they already have.

By doing this, we can give more businesses the ability and confidence to use finance as a positive tool for growth. And enable them to enjoy the positive impacts that good financing can bring.

Finance that solves the stress

Our research shows the key barriers businesses face when trying to access finance. Embedded revenue-based finance addresses all these issues head on.

66% of businesses found it a long and difficult application processes
55% of businesses found term loans and fixed payments don't meet their need
53% of businesses just don't know where to start
