You know your business, we know business finance. 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 in 2011, 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 10,000 businesses get the finance they need, quickly and easily. That adds up to over £0.5B in funding for businesses in the UK and the Netherlands. Funding Options is one of the winners in Nesta’s Open Up Challenge for Open Banking and has been designated by HM Treasury for the bank referral scheme, to help UK SMEs find alternative finance when they’re unsuccessful with the major banks.
