Great news from Funding Circle, which just won a place on Real Business magazine’s prestigious Future 50 list. The Future 50 celebrates the most innovative, creative and “disruptive” companies in Britain – a perfect description of Funding Circle, and a business which we have seen go from strength to strength since Brazil has been working with them.
Funding Circle is truly a fascinating and exciting company. The concept of savers investing in small businesses as an alternative to banks seems to be capturing the public’s imagination and is truly beginning to seem like the Future.
Even George Osborne seems to be on board. His ‘credit-easing’ speech at the Conservative Party Conference earlier this week revolved around the importance of investing in small businesses to get the economy back on its feet –exactly what Funding Circle does.
The Future 50 award is in recognition of Funding Circle’s position as one of the most innovative and exciting businesses in the country. Real Business is opening up the voting to everyone. We can’t think of anyone more deserving than Funding Circle.
