At we provide a free and easy way for SMEs to find alternative business funding.

The on site tool is designed for businesses with a turnover of £100,000 or more - especially those with an interest in the non-bank business funding sector.

By providing links to other websites, Coast to Capital does not guarantee, approve or endorse the information or products available on these websites

We are focused on making it simple for time-constrained business-owners to find the right funder to contact, with only a few simple questions and no personal contact information required to use the site.


The unique collaboration brings together the market-leaders for the main forms of alternative business funding for SME finance , so all types of funding from short to long-term loans / debt / equity or self-investing are covered.


Initial funding associates cover over 70% of the alternative business funding market in equity crowd funding, invoice trading, peer-to-peer and pension-led funding, with more to join the collaboration in the future.


More than just a web portal, is the start of a campaign to create a more collaborative environment for business funding aimed at simplifying SME owners' search for finance to help support their businesses and also a place for the major Banks to redirect customers. We aim to:

  • refer our own unsuccessful applicants directly to the site
  • lobby the Government to introduce "signposting" for any unsuccessful bank applicant
  • use our resources and expertise to raise awareness of different forms of alternative business funding
  • work with business organisations, such as the CBI, FSB and CDFA, to promote alternative finance options to their members.
