iwoca offers funding to support the thousands of small businesses that struggle to access finance through the banks. More startup than financial institution, we use technology to eliminate the cost and complexity associated with traditional business finance. 

Importantly, iwoca is extremely fast. You can sign up in as little as 5 minutes and funds can be in your account within hours of completing your application. We also offer a simple product without complex fees and offer far more flexibility. Find out more about our product here
