Fundbird platform launches for SME funding
Online platform Fundbird has launched to match SMEs with funding.
Backed by fintech angel investors including Yuval Tal, founder of Borderfree and Payoneer, and Rhodium Venture Capital, Fundbird has a unique ability to pre-filter SME applications based on their individual requirements.
This guides the business to understand the type of funding they need and acts as a lead funnel for the alternative finance industry, creating reliable, high quality leads for lending partners.
The Fundbird platform covers multiple financial solutions, including secured loans, unsecured loans, asset based finance, trade finance, property finance, invoice finance, merchant cash advance, equity crowdfunding, peer-to peer lending, and start-up loans.
Among Fundbird’s alternative lending partners are Funding Circle, MarketInvoice, Ebury, Crowdcube, Liberis, iWoca, with plans to reach over 20 by the end of the year.
All have been selected based on criteria including competitive interest rates, flexible payment terms and helpful customer support.
Sharon Argov, CEO and co-founder of Fundbird, said: “We are delighted to launch Fundbird in the UK and begin introducing more small business owners to Britain’s extensive alternative finance landscape.
“We are committed to acting as a conduit for alternative finance lenders and we guarantee our lending partners will receive high quality, convertible leads from Fundbird.”
Fundbird is made up of a team of ten experts, located between the headquarters in London, and their operations office in Tel Aviv.
