Zero Equity Dilution Icon

ZERO EQUITY DILUTION

We appreciate giving away equity is one of the most expensive ways to raise finance, which is why we offer a no-equity dilution business funding solution. This means you get to keep more of your business, and you receive flexible scale up funding to achieve your goals faster.

Quick-offer Response Icon

QUICK-OFFER RESPONSE

Raising capital takes you away from your eCommerce business and can take months of meetings and admin. Because of this, we make it easy for the right types of businesses to access funding. Simply apply online and receive an offer within 24 hours.

Flexible Funding Icon

FLEXIBLE START-UP & SCALE-UP FUNDING

We offer eCommerce funding to suit the size of your company and ambitions (from £50k to £5m), plus a credit line that grows as you do (up to 10x monthly revenues). That means as your business and marketing needs adapt, your finance solution can too.

Marketing Expertise Icon

MARKETING EXPERTISE

We understand the impact that paid, CRM, content and other marketing activities can have on your bottom line. Because of this, if your team is small or stretched, we can help accelerate your marketing efforts through our in-house eCommerce experts and network.

Network Of Experts Icon

NETWORK OF EXPERTS

Working with us means being part of a community of founders and experts, many of whom have scaled and exited their own eCommerce businesses. Whatever your business challenge, we can connect you with the right people to help.
