This is a revolution! We are used to going to a bank with a business plan and been lent money on very high rates of interest - but only under increasingly demanding conditions. Crowd funding is the public investing directly to the businesses - at all stages of their development. Crucially there is a huge range of projects and Crowd Funders.

Crowd Funding and Business Loans

Funding Circle

71 Queen Victoria St, London EC4V 4AY, UK – 020 7401 9111

Several years ago the Funding Circle provided First Technology Transfer with a loan to help develop our next generation real time programming courses. This year we approached them for a further loan to fund the development of a series of distance learning programs. We obtained a further loan. The whole process was dealt with courteously and professionally. Many thanks to all concerned.

Excellent service and perfect fit for our Company. We needed a short term loan to buy a property. The loan was set up and in our account within 2 weeks of making contact with Funding Circle. No obtrusive and irrelevant questions, just a straight forward approach with a very positive outcome - thank you

Business Expert's website is incredibly easy to use and I quickly found the funding options best suited to my business. With expert guidance from their team, I managed to secure a great deal.

Great platform! Works better than expected.

Finanta

Taking the bridging loan to purchase a new house was onerous for me. I researched about so many companies then decided to take it from Finanta. The team responded very quickly. It was the great experience taking the loan from Finanta. Have a look at my new house :)

Very efficient, fast service. Good communication throughout the process. You did a good job! Charged very nominal rate of interest and approved my short term loan quickly without any difficulty.
