Satago Financial Solutions shortlisted as a finalist in the Growth Finance Awards

Satago Financial Solutions has beaten off tough competition to secure itself a place as a finalist in the Best Invoice Finance Provider category of the first-ever Growth Finance Awards.

The Growth Finance Awards launched this year in order to celebrate the companies providing “more than finance” to the UK’s growing businesses. It’s the first event of its kind, celebrating the innovative organisations breathing optimism into all regions of the UK by helping ambitious SMEs to scale new heights. These growth champions provide the vital capital inflows - around £79.7 billion last year - that help thousands of businesses to scale-up, boost productivity and create new jobs up and down the country.

Invoice finance is a crucial tool for growing companies, allowing them to take control of their cash flow and focus on winning new business. The Best Invoice Finance Provider award will be presented to an invoice finance provider that has delivered a clear and demonstrable business impact over the past 12 months - whether a specific case study, project or a wide-reaching service or innovation.

Satago Financial Solutions will compete for the award alongside three other impressive finalists: Banking Circle, Ultimate Finance, and MarketInvoice.

Commenting on becoming a finalist in this prestigious awards event, Sinead McHale, CEO of Satago stated, “we are delighted to be named a finalist at the Growth Finance Awards, recognition like this helps us promote the availability of alternative finance to SMEs in times of increased cashflow uncertainty. Our aim at Satago is to champion small businesses and help promote sustainable growth.”. 

The winner of this award will be announced at an exclusive black-tie dinner hosted by Claudia Winkleman for 400 guests on Wednesday 11 September at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.

“We launched the Growth Finance Awards in order to recognise the champions of small business finance. We’re celebrating 45 companies who are playing a vital role in the UK’s start-up and scale-up up ecosystem, championing and providing finance so that companies can realise their growth ambitions and reach their full potential,” says Guy Tolhurst, Managing Director of Intelligent Partnership, the company behind the awards.

He adds: “I look forward to shining a much-needed spotlight on all of these providers on 11 September at the Royal Lancaster Hotel. To reach the finalist stage among such a stand-out set of entrants is a huge achievement.”

The finalists will now go on to a second round of judging by a panel of 28 independent and expert judges drawn from across the industry. The full list of categories can be viewed here.
