Otta's take on Liberis

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

London-based Liberis offers small businesses a new way of securing loans. By taking an agreed % of customer credit and debit card takings, Liberis has created a brand new system of repayment, meaning small businesses no longer have to rely on traditional loans. Whilst small businesses are a cornerstone of the global economy, they are continuously turned away by traditional lenders, hence Liberis has been able to harness a crucial part of the global market whilst boosting small business.

Liberis isn't the only 'pay-as-you-earn'-style finance provider: it competes with similar schemes provided by the likes of Amazon and Paypal. Nonetheless, it has seen rapid growth, and has funded around $1B to over 23,000 SMEs across the UK, Europe, and the US. This can be accredited to the platform's use of machine learning to understand a customer's risk profile, and hence the maximum funding options available to them.

Liberis operates an impressive global partner network that consists of eCommerce platforms such as Klarna. It has raised significant funding that will enable it to grow its European presence with new and established partners, bringing flexible funding options to SMEs in new territories such as the Nordic region.

Total funding - $145.2m
