Augmenting the financing process

In Europe, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) make up 99% of all businesses, employ 100 million people, and contribute to over half of Europe's GDP. Despite this, access to financing is one of the biggest obstacles for small business owners in Europe that want to grow their business. Solutions that make financing accessible to small business owners are therefore crucial for Europe's growth.

Speaking in this, representatives from Ageras said that together with Froda, they can scale up their business financing offering and provide their customers with an even broader range of financial services. Their surveys show that 68% of small businesses are looking for financing, but most are unable to obtain it via traditional banks. With Froda, they enabled access to ‘smart’ funding by letting customers use their own financial, banking, and accounting data to get a credit approval in seconds.

Expanding the reach of Froda’s financial offers

Ageras is a provider of software for banking, accounting, and administration for small businesses in Europe. The company has more than 300,000 active customers using its products such as Billy, Zervant and Kontist. The partnership with Froda enables Ageras to expand its business financing offering.

Froda’s officials added that their embedded platform makes it easy for other fintech companies to expand internationally and scale their operations. The partnership with Ageras marks an exciting new phase for them.

Froda Embedded was launched in 2021 and has been a success story since its inception, contributing significantly to Froda's growth. Since the beginning of 2023, the business area has grown by 100%, increased the number of partners from three to nine, and expanded from three to five markets. Through the partnership with Ageras, the reach is further expanded, and Froda will be able to reach and assist more European small businesses with financing.
