Unlocking alternative business lending with fintech

minutes presentation
Conrad Ford Funding Options

Conrad will discuss the structural issues that make access to finance a key challenge for economic policymakers, and fintech’s role in giving small businesses fast, simple and personalised alternative lending.

Conrad will also discuss plans for the Netherlands market, where Funding Options is collaborating with ING to give small businesses that aren’t suited for banking lending an “alternative yes”, instead of a “no” when they seek funding.
