What is SMEgo?

SMEgo is a digital platform that connects businesses to funding opportunities, business enablement tools and market access. Old Mutual has partnered with various lenders to reduce the amount of time it takes for business owners to apply for and receive feedback for funding. Business owners often spend a lot of time on administrative tasks such as invoicing customers, the business enablement tools allows businesses to create, track and get paid early for invoices. The platform connects businesses to each other to drive business value and growth.

How does it work?

The SMEgo platform works by filtering applicants according to fund requirements and matching them with applicable funds. The platform then outlines all the required application documentation that SMEs need to submit for all the funds they have selected. SMEs can then upload and store their documents on the platform and use these to apply to multiple funds at once. SMEgo allows funders to sort through applications and update their application status, allowing SMEs to be able to monitor their applications and receive feedback. Funders will only receive completed applications, reducing the administrative burden from a funders side.
