You may have noticed that things look a little different around here. Today we’re excited to announce a new look and feel for Funding Circle.
Since 2010, we’ve been proudly helping small businesses (32,000 and counting!) across the globe — from pediatricians and designers to movie theaters and cosmetics makers — invest in their futures with the help almost 70,000 investors.
Over the years, we’ve found that while our borrowers and investors are diverse, they are also united by a common thread: a restless determination to succeed, and the tenacity to get there; and, a dissatisfaction with the status quo, with a relentless drive to create something better. We call this Made to do More.
At Funding Circle, we know what it’s like to strive for more. We started with a big idea: to build a better financial world. Years ago our U.S. co-founders experienced firsthand how hard it is to access financing from the traditional banking system, even when you have a successful business that’s well along its way. After being rejected or offered terms that simply didn’t make sense over 96 times by traditional lenders, they set out to create a place where their fellow entrepreneurs could access the affordable, fast, and fair capital they deserve.
We’ve come a long way, but we’re just getting started. We want to become the first choice for small businesses and investors globally.
By investing in successful and growing businesses through Funding Circle, investors can diversify their fixed-income portfolios and gain access to attractive returns. Businesses get fast, easy access to financing to grow, create jobs, support local communities and drive the economy forward. We believe it’s better for everyone.
Made to do More is an articulation of the spirit we’ve always had at Funding Circle. With this new brand identity we’re putting it front and center more than we ever have, as we continue to provide the best-in-class customer experience we’ve become known for.
The world doesn’t stand still. Neither do we, and neither do our borrowers and investors. We’re excited to take this next step of our journey and hope you’ll join us along the way.
