    Over the past 12 years, we have built a machine learning and technology platform that is revolutionising SME lending.

    Since launching, we have helped more than 122,000 businesses access £13.7bn. This has a huge societal impact — in 2021 alone the lending through our platform contributed more than £7.2bn to the UK economy and created and sustained 100,000 jobs.

    After having our best year in 2021, this year looks set to be even better as we introduce a suite of greenfield products (Short-term credit solutions and a B2B API), forecast to double our business revenue by 2024.

    Our shared values, passion and purpose underpin everything we do at Funding Circle. Together we are providing small businesses the funding they need to win: Think smart, Make it happen, Be open, Stand together, Live the adventure
