 About

# We're bringing financial services in the Philippines into the 21st century For small businesses in the Philippines, credit is one of the most vital services for growth and prosperity. For businesses who need quick access to short term credit, their current options are limited. Existing paper-based processes to apply for a loan are long, arduous and inefficient. This is what we want to change. We're using technology to remove the inefficiencies and reduce the time from application to approval from average 30 days, to one day. This is a big challenge that will require a talented technical team to execute. We want to build the best technical team in the Philippines, and are currently on the lookout for our first engineering hire. # About The Company - We come from a variety of backgrounds. As well as our European co-founders, our team comprises several Filipinos across business development, servicing, and underwriting. - We consider ourselves more "Startup" than "Financial Services Company". We have worked in both startup and corporate environments in the past, and think there's a lot to be gained from introducing the best aspects of startup mentality into an industry which has been historically very corporate. - We know software. Our CTO was Founding Engineer and CTO at a large European startup which grew from 10 employees to 150. Software and product are in our DNA, and we believe are pivotal to our success. Software is not an afterthought to facilitate a product. It __is__ the product. - We're young and driven. The average age of our company is under 30. People who work here tend do get excited by coming to work. - Great people believe in us. We raised some money in 2015 from a stellar group of investors including 500Startups Asia.
