Ahead of the 25th Annual Conference and following the promise of Peer-to-Peer lending (P2P) regulation in this year’s budget, ISME, the Irish SME association has encouraged SMEs to explore the P2P lending sector as a source of finance. ISME welcomes the participation of P2P lender Flender, who will be exhibiting at this year’s annual conference Think 25 – Looking ahead for Irish Business in November.
Flender Ambassador and former Irish International rugby player Jamie Heaslip said:
“I’ve backed Flender, the Irish Peer 2 Peer lender who provide up to €300K to SMEs for expansion in as little as 24 hours, often even same day transfer of funds. I think this is a game changer and I’ve backed 25 Irish SMEs already through Flender, creating 80 new Irish jobs. I’ll be meeting SME owners at the Flender exhibit at the ISME conference in CityWest and giving away some Autumn International tickets on the day.”
With the promise of peer-to-peer lending regulation in this year’s budget, it’s a good time for small business to look to this sector as a source of finance. P2P is a great way to access SME working capital, while also giving investors a great rate of return.
