We are LendingCrowd

SINCE WE LAUNCHED IN 2014, WE’VE HELPED MORE THAN 500 SMALL BUSINESSES ACROSS BRITAIN ACCESS OVER £43 MILLION IN FUNDING FROM PRIVATE INVESTORS.

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.

THINK OUTSIDE THE BANK

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.

OUR STRATEGY

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.
