The Spotcap Story

Spotcap provides flexible and accessible small business loans, allowing SMEs to focus on what matters – their business. We developed our credit risk algorithm in-house and lend from our own balance-sheet. Headquartered in Berlin Germany, Spotcap launched in Spain in September 2014 before expanding to the Netherlands and Australia in 2015, the UK in 2016 and New Zealand in 2017. The company is led by Founder and CEO Dr. Jens Woloszczak. The growing team currently consists of more than 120 employees. Spotcap is backed by a number of world-class investors including Rocket Internet, Finstar Financial Group, Access Industries, Holtzbrinck Ventures, Kreos Capital and most recently Heartland Bank.

Press coverage

“Spotcap’s credit scoring technology (...) uses thousands of data points to accept or decline a loan or credit line, typically lasting over 12 months.”

"Spotcap, an online lending platform for small businesses, said the number of applicants from Britain had doubled to around 20 percent since the Brexit vote, with many coming from the finance sector."

"Spotcap focuses on small- and mid-sized enterprises. Those businesses often have limited access to credit as they pose more risk to banks and don’t have the track record to prove their ability to repay the funds."
