I've been overwhelmed by the simplicity of the idea and the efficiency of the execution. Where then banks should be and where there are at, is a gaping chasm apart, and where there's a gap in the market, the market usually finds a way.
I found the process simple in every respect, found the people at Funding Circle easy to talk to and easy to deal with, and feel obligated to the people who loaned my company money in a way I've never felt when dealing with a mainstream nameless and faceless financial organisation.
Its how funding should be, people lending money to enterprising business to generate growth and create more jobs. Everyone who leant us £20 or upwards has aided that aim.
I am impressed that the government has seen the merit in supporting this venture and has had the foresight to see that the way to fuel growth is to make sure the lending gets to the businesses that can make that money work best, at the coal face.
If you considering using Funding Circle, as a borrower or a lender I would say, what are you waiting for?!
