Fundrr has been named SME finance company of the year
Idan Jaan, co-founder of Fundrr comments on receiving the award.
“This is a major feather in our cap, and we are extremely honoured to have been acknowledged by the international Prestige Awards.”
The prestigious awards recognises and celebrates SMEs that have overcome their competition and thrived in their respective industries with proven growth and success over a period of 12-months.
Known as the fintech that provides funding to SMEs, Fundrr was nominated for the illustrious award by public vote and by the award’s judging panel who was reportedly impressed with Fundrr’s ‘personal touch, consistency of reviews, and overall attentiveness.’
Rocky Singh, Project Manager from the Awards explains how winners were chosen for the awards.
“Winners were chosen on marketing and branding, business growth methods, customer experience, and approach to new ideas. The Awards also allows businesses to celebrate their achievements within the business community throughout their region.”
Founded in 2018, Fundrr provides funding to a range of businesses via its online platform that allows business owners instant access to available capital. Some of these businesses are in the food, retail, tourism, automotive, accounting, and other various industries.
Jaan provides further insight into the startup and how it functions to provide SME’s much-needed service.
“We have no hidden fees and are upfront with all associated costs. And when an SME applies for finance it is approved within 24 hours.”
Earlier this year, Fundrr launched a new capital fund in partnership with Telkom Financial Services (see this story)
“We gave payment holidays to 90% of our client base as most of them were unable to operate. During the past few months we also focused on improving our online application experience to all existing and new customers,” explains Jaan.
