How did Swoop come about?
Swoop is a UK based Fintech company that has launched into multiple different cities - Ireland, Canada, US and Australia. The growth has been a response to the demand of SMEs requiring access to funding. Funding in the form of loans, equity & grant. Our co-founders are ex-KPMG accountant partners and struggled to find lenders for their SME clients - especially with the ever-growing fintech and alternative lenders in the marketplace. Since our launch in 2015, we are global funding partners of F45 and Baskin Robbins and have given 100s of accountants across the globe to access different funding sources including the likes of RSM and BDO. It has been such a great success and honestly- there is no magic sauce but serving our customers.
