Helping power SMEs’ growth
Across the globe, SMEs aren’t given the finance they need to grow. We’re here to change that, by making finance accessible, quick and simple. Business owners are forward thinkers. They’re determined. They stand up to make a difference and work hard to make it happen. They create jobs, support local communities and drive the economy forward.
That’s why we care about helping them, and why we focus 100% on helping SMEs get the funding they need to win.
Flourishing through funding - Leading UK florist Flower Station creates lovingly hand-crafted bouquets. Its Director and Founder, David Cohen, used his Funding Circle business loan to launch new brands and grow his business.
David set up Flower Station over 20 years ago as a drive-through florist at a disused petrol station. He now runs several flower shops, with a flagship store in North London providing a 24/7 delivery service to customers all over the capital. During lockdown, with his stores having to close, David pivoted the company’s operations online. As a result, business quadrupled, more than making up for Flower Station’s shop closures. The company used a Funding Circle loan to support these expansion activities and develop new brands – for example, the new Love Rose website, which sells high-end preserved roses, and Letterbuds, a subscription service for home-delivered budded flowers. The funds also enabled the completion of an online flower school, which provides video lessons on flower arranging. Business is blooming.
