  • Lendolopolis – to help small and medium-sized businesses obtain business loans from individuals.

In 2018, the start-up reported that it had collected a total of €79.5 million for more than 29,400 creative, charity and entrepreneurial projects with the help of funds collected from 1.3 million contributors.
