Hi, I’m Anil Stocker, CEO and Co-Founder at MarketFinance. I enjoy writing about entrepreneurship, politics, economics, and life inside the UK Fintech movement. I also host a vodcast called Taking Stock where I talk to ambitious business leaders as well as key people from the investment, advisory, and governmental ecosystem.
About my company, MarketFinance
MarketFinance is a UK based fintech business lender. We deliver seamless funding solutions for ambitious business leaders. Since our launch in 2011, we’ve helped businesses access close to £3 billion of funding, to help power their business dreams. We do this by building leading technology and having brilliant people ready to support where required.
MarketFinance is backed by Barclays Bank, Santander InnoVentures, European venture capital fund Northzone (also invested in Klarna, iZettle and Trustpilot), Poland-based private equity group MCI Capital (also invested in iZettle, Azimo and Gett) and Viola Credit based in Israel.
