About Velotrade
Velotrade is an online marketplace where SMEs get funding by selling their invoices to investors who earn above market returns with attractive risk/return profiles. SMEs are having constrained access to traditional financing: increased regulation and greater capital requirements are compounding the problem. Investors are craving yield and have a lot of available liquidity. By creating a new asset class and allowing investors to purchase invoices we solve the SMEs funding problems while offering attractive and safe returns. All invoices are insured by a leading international insurance company and with the help of a number of partners we offer bank-grade security throughout the KYC and validation procedures.

The platform is fully digital: we are able to fulfil a traditional financing function in a far more efficient and streamlined manner without any compromises. Technology allows us to scale our operation while offering a lot of flexibility to sellers and investors. Sellers are given access to new and diversified sources of funding and are able to discount single invoices when they have financing requirements. The process is fast and the seller has full control of every step of the process.
