October

October is the new name of Lendix. October is the leading SME lending platform in continental Europe (source: Altfi). In 2017, October was selected in the Global KPMG/ H2 Ventures Fintech100 for the second consecutive year. October enables SMEs to borrow directly from individual and institutional lenders without going through banks. Lenders invest their savings usefully and profitably to facilitate the funding of the real economy whilst businesses find new, simple and effective sources of finance. October has already originated €230m of loans for more than 500 development projects by SMEs of all sizes and from all sectors. October operates in France, Spain, Italy and The Netherland and soon in Germany.
