We Are Investing

We believe in every business we accept, investing directly in companies we help fund.

We don’t just invest time and energy, we often put our own funds into many of the businesses that successfully raise with CODE Investing. It means we take a much more rigorous approach to ensuring that any business on our investment platform is in a strong position to secure the capital needed to grow.

We only promote businesses that we believe have the potential to succeed.

CODE Investing provides registered investors with full access to businesses that pass our selection criteria and make it through our rigorous due diligence process. Our dedicated team of experienced professionals carefully evaluate the businesses that apply for funding with us.

Business Bootcamp

Our Business Bootcamp sets us apart from the competition. We work hard to ensure that the companies we choose are in the best possible shape, primed and ready to be presented to our established network of investors.

We always look for the following traits in any company we vet:

Businesses must have an established customer base

Strength

The business must have an established customer base, demonstrated proof of concept, and reached revenue and cash flow milestones.

As a leading alternative finance platform our due diligence processes are key

Integrity

We scrutinise valuations, income projections, contracts, market analysis and more, so we can honestly say we have checked and verified the details.

Leadership is an important element for an SME to succeed

Leadership

Every successful business has strong leadership. We believe this is essential in not only running the business but attracting serious investors.

Lending Service

Our core lending service offers a number of debt instruments through which businesses can raise capital, chief of which are bonds, asset-backed loans, and convertible loan notes.

CODE Investing works individually with each business to determine its best approach to the market. We then tailor an offering using one or more of these instruments to best support that approach.
