Based in London, iwoca offers credit facilities to small businesses in the UK and Germany. Christoph founded iwoca in 2011 with James Dear: they were both working in finance when they noticed how small businesses were getting left behind by big banks. So, they quit their jobs and put together a team to invent a new type of lending service using lightning-fast software: one that would give small business owners a great experience while getting the finance they need.
