The F in Tech podcast

A few weeks ago I spoke with Elliott Gotkine (formerly of BBC and Bloomberg) about the early days of starting MarketFinance and when a few things went wrong, what we had to do to drag ourselves out of the hole. You learn more from the things that go wrong!

It may not be the world’s oldest profession; lenders have been factoring – allowing customers to borrow against the value of their invoices – since Roman times, and perhaps even longer. But it wasn’t until Anil Stocker and his cofounders came along that the industry was given a technological twist. Since creating the company in 2011, MarketFinance (which until recently was known as Market Invoice) has lent more than £3 billion to small and medium-sized businesses – money that would have helped some of these SMEs to survive, and many more to thrive. What’s this got to do with garden furniture? Have a listen, as it’s one of the craziest stories you’ll ever hear in fintech. Enjoy.
