We help business owners get the right finance in place, so they can trade, plan and grow with confidence.
Funding is the fuel companies need to grow, adapt and survive. But all too often, businesses can find it hard to secure the finance they need – there are too many confusing products, complex application forms and long waits.
When we started Funding Options, we wanted to transform the business finance market. We set out to make sure every business owner could make an informed choice, and have access to instant funding decisions.
With a panel of 120+ lender partners, we’ve helped more than 11,000 businesses get the finance they need, quickly and easily. That adds up to over £600m in funding for businesses in the UK and the Netherlands.
Recognised as a fast-growth scaleup, we were named in the top 50% of the FT1000, the annual list of Europe’s fastest growing companies, for 2 years running and awarded Lendtech of the Year at the UK Fintech awards 2021.
