We’re building
a better financial world
Funding Circle was created with a big idea:
To revolutionize the outdated banking system and secure a better deal for everyone.

Thousands of loans later, we’ve helped businesses expand, investors prosper and the economy grow.

We’ve taken this progress global.

Funding Circle is the world’s leading marketplace exclusively focused on small businesses — more than $3bn has been lent to 25,000 businesses in the UK, USA, Germany and the Netherlands. Today, businesses can borrow directly from a wide range of investors, including more than 60,000 people, the UK Government, local councils, a university and a number of financial organizations.

Funding Circle in the U.S.

What makes us different? Our roots are in small business. Our U.S. co-founders started Funding Circle because they were small business owners themselves; they had experienced first-hand how hard it is to access finance, even when you have a successful business that’s well along its way. After opening their 96th loan rejection letter, they realized something was wrong. The traditional bank loan system was broken. So, they set out to build a better solution for American small business owners.
