The purpose of this page it to assist fintechs and community lenders interested in the Affordable Credit Challenge to find each other. We want to make it easier for potential partners to find out who you are, what you do and how you might collaborate.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Both fintechs and community lenders are encouraged to create a profile. This will only take about five minutes. Your profile can then be viewed by other organisations looking for partners. Simply click the 'Add your profile' button to get started. If you're adding an organisation's profile, please enter your organisation's name in the 'First Name' box and leave the 'Last Name' box blank.
When searching for potential partners, click on the grey tags on the left of the screen to filter organisations by type ("community lender" or "fintech"), various problem/opportunity areas they are interested in collaborating on (marked "P/O"), and a longer list of capabilities. You can filter by one tag at a time.
ABOUT THE AFFORDABLE CREDIT CHALLENGE
The Affordable Credit Challenge will support partnerships between UK community lenders and fintechs to develop innovative technological solutions that will increase access to affordable, responsible credit. The Challenge is backed by HM Treasury and delivered by Nesta Challenges.
Development grants will be awarded to six partnerships seeking to develop the most impactful solutions, with three of these partnerships winning cash prizes in spring 2020.
