About CoFunder

Within the crowdfunding industry we have proven to be the leaders and proud of the fact that we were created by the same team behind SeedUps.

We have learned a lot more of business funding since we launched SeedUps, and as a result, we have raised to new heights in the finance industry.

International footprint

Our international footprint reaches to Ireland, the UK and the USA with over two thousand start-ups proudly registered on the platform. We are proud to say that we have played a fundamental role in thousands of individuals and businesses reach their full potential with the funding they needed to achieve this.

Matching lenders and borrowers

One thing we understand is that the restrictive lending policies of banks simply do not work for thousands, and so we developed CoFunder. As a result of our knowledge and understanding of your needs, we created a platform that is aimed at quality, growth based companies seeking finance.

If you are looking expand and/or create jobs but do not have access to the necessary working capital to do so, we are able to connect you to reliable lenders. Businesses are now able to raise from £5,000 to £100,000 in capital from our crowdfunding backers, provided that you meet the required credit score but the backers ultimately decide which companies they want to fund.

Advantages of our revolutionary peer to peer lending system

We welcome creditworthy businesses that have funding requirements to connect directly to lenders with available capital wanting to invest via the peer-to-peer lending platform. Borrowers are able to do so without the restrictive lending practices and high costs associated with bank funding and other traditional forms of lending.

CoFunder Services

The services we offer aims to facilitate business and personal loans of between £5,000 and £100,000 with a repayment period of between three and five years for creditworthy borrowers. Funders must bid for interest rates on their loan offers.

Direct relationships

Direct relationship between borrowers and lenders improves the quality of service, and the entire process in general. Dealing with real people rather than faceless institutions makes borrowers less likely to default as they have a true sense of ownership. Our advanced social networking tools serve to further facilitate promote these direct relationships.

Who can apply for a loan?

In order to apply for a loan, you must be a UK business and you must have been trading for at least two years. A series of credit checks and searches are conducted to ensure that only creditworthy businesses form part of the platform.

Our loans

There is a minimum loan term of three years and a maximum term is five years. A 2% drawdown fee of the loan amount and 1% per annum of the outstanding balance will be charged. There is no obligation to accept a peer to peer loan offer from lenders and payments are made by direct debit.

Better interest rates and minimal fees

Lenders prefer our crowdfunding platform for investment as they are offered better interest rates and they can choose their own desired return on investment.
