What's it all about?
Peer To Peer finance can be broken
into three types;
First, Peer-to-peer lending (P2PL) is the practice of lending money via online platforms to unrelated individuals, or "peers", without going through a traditional financial intermediary such as a bank or other traditional financial institution.
Second, is Peer-to-peer investing (P2PI) this lending takes place online too on peer-to-peer lending companies' websites using various different lending platforms and credit checking tools.
Third, CrowdFunding is the practice of funding a project or
venture by raising monetary contributions from a large number of people via online platforms. CrowdFunding is driven by three types of parties.
The project initiator who proposes the idea and/or project to be funded; individuals or groups who support the idea; and the online platform that brings the parties together to launch/fund the idea/project.
Your hands needn’t be tied by crippling interest rates, unreliable sources of finance or overdrafts that fail to keep pace with your growth rate.

CoFunder comes from the same, experienced team behind SeedUps, an innovator in the emergent crowdfunding market. We have learned much about the lack of business funding in the two years since we launched SeedUps. With over two thousand start-ups registered on the platform in Ireland, the UK and the USA we continually turn away good local businesses, simply because they do not meet with the SeedUps criteria of being less than two years old (to qualify as a start-up), or they are not in the technology sector.
