About Swoop

Swoop is a one-stop shop for businesses seeking finance. Our user-friendly tech platform simplifies and speeds up access to loans, grants and equity funding across Ireland and the UK. We integrate with multiple data sources to help our customers build their business profile quickly and be instantly matched to funding. Our customers also have their own financial dashboard to keep up to date on their financial and liquidity metrics and we alert them when they become eligible for new funds or savings. Once we match to the right funding or saving we manage the application process so that our customers can focus on building their business. Customers range from start-up business to larger corporates requiring capital.

 With Swoop, we want to help businesses demystify this problem by showing them the broad funding landscape that currently exists across the UK & Ireland. Through a combination of our funding experience, our matching technology and our 1000+ providers, we can assess their needs quickly and match them to the right funding solution. We want our messaging to celebrate this and we want to uncover and hero the SMEs and business owners making great strides from growing their businesses. Swoop values people who strive to change things. We want to make thousands of entrepreneurs lives better through our platform. Swoop is a community, so our content should look to engage people to talk, share and ask questions
