We connect business owners to the right funding

For founders moving their business to the next level. For entrepreneurs negotiating a tough market. For leaders looking to adapt their strategy. We help business owners get the right finance in place, so they can trade, plan and grow with confidence.

Our story

Funding is the fuel companies need to grow, adapt and survive. But all too often, businesses can find it hard to secure the finance they need – there are too many confusing products, complex application forms and long waits.

When we started Funding Options in 2011, we wanted to transform the business finance market. We set out to make sure every business owner could make an informed choice, and have access to instant funding decisions.

Since then we’ve helped more than 11,000 businesses get the finance they need, quickly and easily. That adds up to over £0.6B in funding for businesses in the UK and the Netherlands.

Our story

Our leadership team

Experienced finance professionals, data specialists, technical trailblazers, creative experts and customer success champions – together, the team at Funding Options is revolutionising the world of business finance. As technology and the market continue to evolve, we’ll keep on pushing for more change, more innovation and more options - always with the business owner’s interests at the centre of everything we do.
