Investor evening: meet the co-founders
In the third installment of our investor evening roundup, you can hear from Funding Circle co-founders Samir Desai, James Meekings and Andrew Mullinger who spoke at the recent event hosted at our London office.
They discuss the idea behind Funding Circle, what building a sustainable marketplace means for you, and future plans for the business.
Andrew started off the night by explaining why the three university friends decided to quit their jobs more than six years ago, to plan what would become the UK’s largest marketplace for small businesses loans.
James followed on to discuss how building a sustainable marketplace means having a diverse mix of businesses with thousands of loans, allowing investors to be diversified.
Samir rounded off the evening and talked in depth about raising capital, how lending to businesses across geographies may be possible in the future and gave a quick update on Funding Circle US.
