Funding Options

Scaleup Innovator

Business Lending


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.

With a panel of 120+ lender partners, Funding Options helped more than 10,000 businesses across the UK and the Netherlands access over £0.5B. Through the launch of Funding Cloud™, we've reduced the time from loan application to credit approval to a record-breaking 20 seconds. We're proud to have recently won LendTech of the year at the 2021 UK FinTech Awards. We're also one of the winners in Nesta’s Open Up Challenge for Open Banking, and have 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.
