Celebrating Scotland’s successful SMEs


LendingCrowd was proud to support the recent Scottish Business Insider SME Awards, which celebrate the success of Scotland’s best-performing small and medium-sized companies.

We sponsored the title for Fastest Growing SME300 Company, which was awarded to Glasgow-based Castle Precision Engineering, an innovative business that operates across demanding sectors including the aerospace, defence, electronics and energy industries.

The trophy was presented to Castle Precision Engineering’s Managing Director, Yan Tiefenbrun, by Anthony Allen, Senior Business Development Manager at LendingCrowd.

Anthony, pictured above right with Mr Tiefenbrun, said: “LendingCrowd, the only fintech lending platform headquartered in Scotland, was founded in 2014 to fund ambitions and help alleviate the funding gap facing so many of our small and medium-sized businesses. Over the past five years we’ve supported the growth of virtually every type of business, from Kirkwall to Kilmarnock, with more than £15 million of lending across Scotland.

“SMEs are the backbone of the Scottish economy, so it’s vital they can access the funds they need to continue thriving – creating jobs, opportunities and futures. It’s great to see businesses expanding, so everyone at LendingCrowd is especially proud to sponsor the Scottish Business Insider award for the Fastest Growing SME300 company.”

Congratulations to the team at Castle Precision Engineering!
