MarketInvoice and Capital Enterprise are pleased to invite you to attend the launch of the “Next Generation Finance Consortium” (NGFC), an umbrella group of alternative finance platforms, crowd funding platforms, business angel networks and credit unions. The aim of this launch is to provide some insight into the different methods of non-bank finance which have emerged in the market.
Since the credit crunch there has been an increase in the number of next generation finance providers, who are leveraging cutting edge technology and the latest market practices to create online platforms that connect businesses to new pools of capital. MarketInvoice, one of the members steering the NGFC committee, is a perfect example of an innovative platform which allows SMEs to access finance by auctioning their invoices to a variety of institutional investors, money managers and high-net worth individuals.
These new innovative platforms allow business owners to raise finance in a revolutionary way and to access new channels of capital which were not previously available.
While we have seen an increase in the different methods of funding available, many companies still struggle to access these new sources due to a lack of awareness and understanding. As a result, the NGFC has been established to provide advice and support to businesses looking for new alternatives. It will create a link between new and traditional models to ensure business owners can find the right source of finance for their individual needs. The NGFC also aims to liaise with Government bodies and other organisations to lobby for support on key issues related to SME finance.
