Creative Capital helps Small to Medium Enterprises fund the growth of their business with access to short term finance. As one of the alternative financiers available to small businesses, they have achieved year on year growth in excess of 100%. So far in 2013 they have made over £6m available to their customers in the North West.
Founded in 2010 by Jon Clauson and co-Director Dai Rees, the business is going from strength to strength, gaining a firm footing in the alternative funding sector. Servicing many business sectors including manufacturing, construction, recruitment, logistics and engineering, Creative Capital’s method of invoice finance involves none of the downsides to full service factoring, where long term, whole turnover contracts can be prohibitive.
Managing Director Jon Clauson says “We don’t have upfront fees, we don’t have any tie ins. We are flexible with the percentage of funds we advance; and our reaction times, together with our ability to move from application to approval is fast – which is what our customers want. In many cases small businesses need funds very quickly when they hit a cash flow problem. This is usually tied in with a period of growth or expansion opportunities, and if approved we can and do get funds to businesses within 48 hours of application”.
Creative Capital has been surprised by the levels of customer retention. They expected customers to disappear after 1 or 2 transactions, but over 70% discount 10 or more invoices. Sue Moore, Client Services Director who joined the business in May commented “As a small business it’s essential that your business is built around your customer’s needs. What impressed me as soon as I joined was the flexible and highly tailored approach which is taken to meet each customer’s individual needs. I believe this is the reason why Jon and Dai have had such great success and one of the reasons why we are a finalist in the North West Finance Awards”
The team are delighted to be ‘Outstanding Business of The Year’ finalists, and are looking forward to attending the North West Finance Awards dinner to be held at the Reebok Stadium on 26th September 2013. The awards are supported by organisations including ICAEW and CIMA. For more information visit the North West Finance Awards Website.
