The Spotcap story

Spotcap was founded in 2014 with an entrepreneurial spirit and a considerable objective: to empower SMEs with tailored finance, allowing them to focus on what really matters – their business. Combining cutting-edge proprietary technology with an experienced team of credit specialists, we make business finance accessible in a way that’s new and extremely versatile. Our vision became reality when Spotcap launched in 2014. To date we have secured more than GBP 70 million in funding, we operate in five countries, and we’re enabling thousands of businesses to realise their own ambitions. Spotcap employs more than 110 people and is headquartered in Berlin (Germany) with a local presence in Spain, the UK, the Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand.

Who is Spotcap serving?

Globally, 95% of businesses are small or medium-sized. They provide employment, drive innovation and underpin economies. Many of them need to borrow in order to grow, but can find it hard to get support from traditional financial institutions. Spotcap, through its unique credit analysis model and straightforward online processes, is meeting the needs of many of these businesses.
