“Since launching in 2014, our mission has been to do things differently to the banks because we know that SMEs need an alternative route to funding,” said Adrian Innes, head of origination at LendingCrowd (pictured above, left).
“SMEs are the powerhouse of the British economy but many of our most promising businesses face difficulties in accessing the funds that allow them to grow and enter new markets.
“Combining the best of technology with prudent banking tradition, our credit team – who have a century of combined credit analysis experience – enable established small businesses to access flexible and affordable financing.”
