Business Finance Compared became the first-ever winner of the Jim Mellon Start-Up Prize at last weekend’s Master Investor Show.
The comparison platform and its CEO, Olly Betts – who spoke to SME Insider last week about how his company is shaking up the small business funding sector – were hand-selected by superstar investor and businessman Jim Mellon and his colleagues for their work disrupting the small business funding market.
As part of the prize Betts presented his platform at the 13th annual Master Investor Show. He will also receive a one-on-one mentoring session with Mellon himself.
Betts said: “I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done at Business Finance Compared, and this award is an incredible vote of confidence in our vision for the small business funding sector. We’re thrilled to be the first-ever recipients of the Jim Mellon Start-Up Prize and view this honour as a huge leap forward on our mission to get small businesses the finance they need to grow in a clear, transparent and independent way.”
