This edition brings a renting experience to members of Real Estate Institutes/customers’ platform, an online lender providing loans to small and medium sized Australian businesses, a payments platform that simplifies trade credit for business, an equity crowdfunding platform that connects investors with listed companies raising capital  and a money transfer at low cost platform.

Check them out below!

Hutly

Hutly builds technology to provide an anxiety-free renting experience to members of Real Estate Institutes and their customers. They began by focusing on smart contracts, like tenancy agreements signed against the blockchain, and now they are streamlining the interactions property managers have with tenants and owners to improve the relationships between all parties. 2020 has been a whirlwind year for Hutly. When COVID-19 hit, they were running a pilot with a small group of REIQ members. Virtually overnight, their technology was being used by all of the REIQ’s network to sign agreements without paper. 2021 is shaping up to be another big year, with another Real Estate Institute recently signing on to use the technology across all of their forms.


Banjo Loans

Banjo has been delivering working capital solutions to small and medium sized businesses since 2015.

They blend rapid data analysis technology with a personalised relationship approach. Lending decisions are made in 24 hours, after which funds can be in your bank account in as little as 48 hours. All with direct support from their team through enquiry stage to deal settled.

To give your business the flexibility it needs, they provide unsecured loans up to $500K across 6-24 month terms. This includes their Flexi Working Capital loan offering clients up to 4 months interest expense only. Talk to them about how they can help power your business, at partners@banjoloans.com
