What makes us different? Our roots are in small business. Our U.S. co-founders started Funding Circle because they were small business owners themselves; they had experienced first-hand how hard it is to access finance, even when you have a successful business that’s well along its way. After opening their 96th loan rejection letter, they realized something was wrong. The traditional bank loan system was broken. So, they set out to build a better solution for American small business owners.
