BridgeFund: Automated Where Possible – Humane When Necessary
BridgeFund is a financial platform that helps entrepreneurs realize their growth ambitions by providing loans in a simple, fast, and flexible way.
What problem they solve: Nowadays, Banking systems have become too hesitant and slow when it comes to offering loans. Even after dozens of questions, paperwork and a lot of hassle, you have to wait on average 6 weeks for their decision. Business opportunities and growth ambitions can be lost during that time.
Fortunately, BridgeFund helps you arrange your own business loan independently within just 5 minutes without the intervention of a bank. You can quickly get working capital for purchasing machines, inventory, stocks, or bridging debtors. It is also possible to borrow money for growth and expansion expenditures – these include opening a new office/branch, running a marketing campaign, or launching a new website. It has never been easier to invest in the growth of your company and take it to the next level.
How it works: You can apply entirely online and the same working day you'll find out whether you are eligible for a business loan or not, and if approved – what your lending ceiling is. Repayment is charged automatically on a daily basis. Paying each day a bit releases you from accumulating a greater refund per month.
As soon as the debit authorization from your bank is received, you get the money and can get back to your business.
