The story behind Capalona
Founded in 2014, Capalona was an idea born out of frustration. Having run businesses themselves in the past, our three Co-Founders, Simon Moorcroft, Jamie Moorcroft and Rich Wilcock, were only too familiar with the lengthy process of finding business finance.
They wanted to build a free online comparison tool that makes it easy for other business owners to compare and apply for the best-fit business finance deals possible.
Alternative business finance is a very crowded marketplace, making it very confusing for customers trying to make sense of it. So together with their combined 40 years of experience in the consumer and business finance industry, Simon, Jamie, and Rich developed a comparison model to simplify the process of applying for business finance.
When running a business, keeping an eye on the purse strings is important. So it makes sense to have a single platform where business owners can compare all the best finance deals to make sure there isn’t a better deal elsewhere.
Capalona serves to cut through the confusion, helping and directing businesses to the right product that is best suited to their business requirements. Once the right product is identified, Capalona makes sure that the funding quotation is the most competitive it can be and the business owner is getting the best deal possible.
The process has been designed to be as simple as possible and gives the user a clear, user-friendly approach. It’s free to use, and Capalona doesn’t charge any fees to the applicant for using the service.
On our mission to make the business finance landscape easier to navigate, Simon was shortlisted at the Fintech Awards Wales for ‘Rising Fintech Star, and Sorodo Limited (for its Capalona platform) was shortlisted for a NACFB Award for ‘Broker Innovation’.
