Funding Xchange: Turning SME finance on its head

Publication: Management Today
3rd September 2016

Our Co-Founder and CEO Katrin was interviewed for a feature in the prominent B2B magazine Management Today. It’s a great article, where Katrin talks about her experience in the SME market and how being a small business owner means she’s in the perfect position to help small businesses access the finance they need.

That's of course because she was — seven years at Bain in its financial services department. The 500-cow dairy farm in Ireland's County Wexford is her family home-from-home. But it is still the reason she quit her career in the City and bet the farm (not literally) to start alternative finance platform Funding XChange.
