Revolutionizing a broken system

When Funding Circle was founded, we could see that businesses weren’t being given the finance to grow, while investors were making poor returns. We had a simple idea — let them support each other.

By lending directly to businesses through Funding Circle, investors can now earn attractive returns to better provide for their future. Businesses get fast, easy access to funding to grow, create jobs, support local communities and drive the economy forward. We believe it’s better for everyone.
