Peer-to-peer lending and financial innovation in the United Kingdom

Written by David Bholat on Tuesday, 27 September 2016.

Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending — direct lending between lenders and borrowers online outside traditional financial intermediaries like banks — first emerged in the United Kingdom and the world with the launch of Zopa in 2005. Our paper provides a quantitative analysis of nearly 14 million loan agreements. We lay bare the history of P2P lending from its beginning, showing the regional geography of P2P lending in the United Kingdom. We suggest that the history of P2P lending can shed light on financial innovation in general. We base our conclusions on four semi-structured interviews with the founders of the three most significant UK P2P platforms (Zopa, RateSetter, and Funding Circle).

\\\ WARNING /// Disruptive thinking ahead

Written by Julie Meyer on Tuesday, 16 June 2015.

I am an observer. This is the way I approach the world. I've been thinking the thoughts that I'm going to share with you for eight years, and I keep on trying to refine the thesis to find out whether or not I'm smoking dope. I keep having conversations with smart entrepreneurs and investors, because, one day, someone might tell me something that I've observed incorrectly. If I've made a mistake or I need to refine my thesis, I will be open-minded. Yet, to be honest, the opposite is happening. The market is approaching where I've been. I understand how digital disruption is affecting traditional, non-tech businesses and the vital role digital enablers can play in helping them build digital revenues.

What can accelerator programmes help you with?

Written by Ian Merricks on Monday, 15 June 2015.

Why consider an accelerator in the first place? What value do/can/should they add to your start-up?

With over 500,000 businesses started each year in the UK, the short answer is differentiation. Various degrees of filtering occur, at selection stage, throughout the programme with the input of mentors and then at the investor event or "demo day". This screening has a real value.

If you are then selected, you have delivered your first huge point of external differentiation. In our Accelerator Academy programme you are one of 30 high growth start-ups we will work with that year (in three semesters each supporting 10 start-ups), selected from say 300 applicants.

Milan: The new hub for entrepreneurs

Written by Julie Meyer on Monday, 08 June 2015.

My life has taken a decidedly Italian angle over the past quarter as I have a new business partner, Andrea Febbraio, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Europe, based in Rome. He's the co-founder of Teads (formerly Ebuzzing), a £67m revenue video advertising business run by Pierre Chappaz, who previously sold Kelkoo for £336m to Yahoo.

SponsorMyEvent: Facilitating a $54 Billion industry

Written by Clara Hosshage on Friday, 05 June 2015.

Anyone who has organised an event knows how difficult it can be to find the right sponsoring partner. However, corporates are also struggling to find sponsorship opportunities. Being a serial entrepreneur, Peter Poehle (to the left) saw an opportunity to re-shape this $54 billion industry, one which he couldn't refuse. He partnered with Gilles Poulles (to the right), and together they have developed an online marketplace, SponsorMyEvent.com, which leverages matchmaking algorithms to facilitate introductions between organisers and sponsors.

EntrepreneurCountry Global met with Peter to discuss how SponsorMyEvent is planning to transform a previously analogue and old-fashioned industry, and how platforms are facilitating this change.
