With ezbob you can apply and receive business funding at any hour of the day, from any internet connected device and use our funding for any purpose
ezbob was the brainchild of its two founders that believed that the time had come to challenge the banks in regards to small business lending. The business was founded in 2011 when a team of financial experts and technology gurus began laying the groundwork for what would be the most advanced business lending platform in the market. ezbob was introduced to the market in July 2012 and received a glowing reception. Since launch the company has provided funding to thousands of businesses across the UK. The company has also won awards and has been chosen to showcase its technology at several leading financial technology events such as FinovateEurope and Money2020 both in 2013 & 2014 and efma 2014.
ezbob’s credibility shines when it comes to the industry bodies and investors that have joined the company. Shareholders include the UK Government’s Angel Co-Fund . In addition, ezbob was chosen to be the first internet lender in Europe to be appointed as a EU financial intermediary by the European Investment Fund (EIF). The EU has provided ezbob with micro-credit guarantees which allow us to lend more and at better rates to micro-enterprises.
Challenging the banks required us to simplify the business loan process which meant our business would be 100% online and automated; still the team behind the technology are human and we understand that behind each online application there is a business owner who is as dedicated to his/her work as much as we are.
