Fractal Labs Joins SME Finance Forum to help spur innovation and promote SMEs growth

Washington, D.C., November 13, 2019Fractal Labs has joined the SME Finance Forum, a global membership network that brings together financial institutions, technology companies, and development finance institutions to share knowledge, spur innovation, and promote the growth of SMEs. 

“40 percent of small and medium businesses worldwide struggle to get access to the credit and capital that they need to grow their enterprises. We are thrilled to welcome Fractal Labs to our network of more than 160 members who are working to eliminate the finance gap for SMEs,” said Matthew Gamser, CEO of the Forum.

Fractal Labs is a UK based, API-led fintech focused on redefining banking for SMEs – the backbone and lifeblood of the global economy. 

Founded in 2014, Fractal is fundamentally redefining financial services for SMEs. Their platform combines data, AI and automation to enable financial service providers to better serve their SME customers, and in turn, empower businesses with frictionless access to the financial products they need to grow and prosper. 

“We are looking forward to having access to the Forum’s network of industry leaders – there is a level of prestige and authority in being associated with the SME Finance Forum as a member. We will also benefit from access to peer learning events such as webinars and the Global Forum,” said Nicholas Heller, CEO and Co-Founder of Fractal Labs.

About SME Finance Forum
The SME Finance Forum was established by the G20 Global Partnership for Financial Inclusion (GPFI) in 2012 as a knowledge center for data, research and best practice in promoting SME finance. As an implementing partner for the GPFI, the International Finance Corporation (IFC) was tasked with managing the initiative. In 2015, the SME Finance Forum partnered with CapitalPlus Exchange to expand and upgrade the former Small Business Banking Network.
