The Spotcap mission
Empowering SMEs with tailored finance, allowing them to focus on what really matters – their business.
How Spotcap helps businesses
Despite driving innovation and employment, many small and medium-sized businesses in New Zealand find it hard to borrow from traditional financial institutions. Through our unique approach of utilising technology to simplify the application and assessment process, Spotcap is making business finance accessible to the SMEs that are the backbone of our economy.
