We are LendingCrowd


Our borrowers and investors think outside the bank. By joining LendingCrowd, you’ll be part of a team that’s dedicated to making investors’ money
work harder for them by helping small businesses access the finance they need to grow. Following a recent fundraising of our own, we’re planning
to more than double our lending this year.


People are at the heart of everything we do. From the business owner seeking a loan to buy new equipment, to the investor looking for a better return on their money, people turn to us because we’re better than a bank.

We’ve built an innovative platform that connects investors and borrowers, but our people play a vital role in every step of the journey. We’re a small team with a collaborative culture, working across every part of the business and learning from each other every day.

This is a fast-growing business, so our people are constantly building on their skills and focusing their efforts to deliver the best results for our clients.


Having recently completed a £2 million external funding round, and with a strong pipeline of investor and borrower demand, LendingCrowd is making a real impression in the fast-growing alternative finance market.
As part of our drive to build market position and bring peer-to-peer lending to an even wider audience, we’ve launched our first television advertising campaign.
This is being supported by continued investment in technology, including new mobile apps and automated processes.
