Sobre Lendahand

Lendahand fue condecorada como la 'Plataforma de financiación colectiva del año' de IEX durante los últimos dos años. Somos una plataforma de crowdlending ambiciosa y de rápido crecimiento enfocada en la inversión de impacto, ubicada en el pleno corazón de Rotterdam, la ciudad más animada de los Países Bajos.
A través de nuestra plataforma, cualquier persona puede combatir la pobreza invirtiendo desde solo 50 euros en empresas y emprendedores en mercados emergentes, y al mismo tiempo obtener una rentabilidad justa. Hemos realizado inversiones en más de 20 países, como Uganda, Mozambique, Georgia, Colombia y muchas empresas de energía renovable, principalmente en el África subsahariana.
Lendahand se inició en 2013 en el vestíbulo de un hotel en Utrecht. En ese momento, nos emocionamos cuando conseguimos recaudar por primera vez 10 000 € en un solo mes. A día de hoy, a través de la plataforma canalizamos más de 2.500.000 € al mes, y esperamos continuar creciendo a este ritmo. A través de la plataforma, nuestros inversores han invertido un total de 120.000.000€. Nuestra próxima gran meta es llegar a los 1.000 millones.

About us:

Lendahand is a mission-driven fintech. We are part of the B Corp community and have won numerous awards (e.g. 3x Best crowdfunding platform in the Netherlands).

Lendahand has found product/market fit and is in the scale up phase. Our objective is to go from €150mio in amount lent, to €1 billion in the next few years. We are active in the Netherlands, France, Belgium, and the UK. Other countries will follow shortly. It helps that we are one of the happy few to have obtained a licence as a European Crowdfunding Service Provider.

We are ‘full-stack’ and do everything ourselves: from investments through ops to marketing. We use Ruby on Rails and deploy our stack to AWS.

There is no secret sauce to our success: we have assembled a team of people with diverse backgrounds and ideas of how the future should look, while all sharing the same mission. In our case, that is to fight poverty in developing countries in a kick-ass smart way! Together we form a dynamic and high-performing team that gets things done and is having fun doing it.

Therefore we have created a brand new and very exciting role for someone that is able to marry a business mindset with technological expertise.
