About us

We are Uncapped

We power founders to go further, faster

We're founders helping founders win

Here at Uncapped, we believe founders shouldn’t have to give away ownership of their company to fund growth. That’s why we provide no-security and no-equity investments from £10k - £2 million to founders and companies who are changing the world.

We charge a flat fee of 6-12% on the capital provided and get repaid through a revenue share. There are no pitches, cap tables or coffees required. So founders can apply online, receive an offer and focus on growing their business!

We’re a fully remote company and backed by Europe’s top investors including Seedcamp, Global Founders Capital, Whitestar, and Mouro Capital (Santander Bank) - early investors in other fintechs such as Transferwise, Revolut, and Funding Circle.

We are not just founder-friendly, we are founders

Everything we do is to create an environment where founders thrive

Our no-equity, no-security approach means you own more of your business

Our flexible terms that mean you are never caught out by repayments

Our insights tools mean you don't miss out on growth opportunities

Our partner referrals give you access usually reserved for venture backed companies

Our story

Uncapped was born out of frustration with the existing funding options available to European entrepreneurs

Asher was an entrepreneur but didn’t want to take financing from the banks because they all wanted personal guarantees. Venture capital wasn’t ideal either as he didn’t want to lose equity, so repeatedly missed out on growth opportunities. 

Meanwhile, Piotr was a VC who met hundreds of founders who had great businesses but needed a better funding model.  Often founders would give up equity to finance marketing and inventory expenses because they had no other choice. It took a long time to raise and often meant the founders lost control of their company along the way. 

Together they were inspired to start Uncapped so entrepreneurs could access funding on their terms and spend their time executing rather than fundraising. This is the funding product they wish always existed.
