We areSocial and BorsadelCredito.itthe Italian leader in peer-to-peer lending, have signed an agreement to support the growth of Italian SMEs through new financing tools.

The agreement, the first of its kind in Italy, aims to create a preferential access point for virtuous companies that turn to one of the two channels, quickly and at no additional cost.
In concrete terms, SMEs that obtain a loan from BorsadelCredito.it and that need to finance themselves later with equity crowdfunding, will be able to benefit from the validation already carried out by the lending portal and obtain facilitated access to the Mamacrowd platform of SiamoSoci to start a fundraising campaign. On the other hand, companies that have conducted equity crowdfunding campaigns, will be able to enjoy the due diligence done by Mamacrowd to request a loan to BorsadelCredito.it and take advantage of the validation obtained by the investors of the Mamacrowd community in the evaluation process of the lending portal.

The collaboration between the two platforms was born to respond to a twofold need of the market, which sees on the one hand companies improve their rating and have a greater chance of obtaining a loan when they are able to capitalize adequately attracting new shareholders and on the other hand a greater propensity of investors to enter into companies that have been able to finance themselves through debt.

The partnership between SiamoSoci and BorsadelCredito.it consists in the creation of a coordinated coordinated evaluation process that allows SMEs to more easily access the services offered. However, companies must comply with the evaluation criteria of both platforms:

  • to apply for a loan from BorsadelCredito.it one must have a minimum of 12 months of activity, a turnover of at least 50 thousand euros and no serious prejudices;
  • to start an equity crowdfunding campaign on the platform of SiamoSoci you must comply with Consob regulations and obtain a validation from the evaluation committee of Mamacrowd.

The agreement is aimed at SMEs with a turnover between 1 and 15 million, which thanks to the collaboration between SiamoSoci and BorsadelCredito.it, now have a new means of financing to support their growth.
