Many years of experience have led the team at Bigstone to identify a serious challenge for small businesses:

access to working capital is far too difficult and slow.

 

Together they decided to take action and build a platform that puts small business first.

 

This is not a startup, Bigstone is not a buzzword that will come and go, the five people you see on this page have built something unique which is truly good at one thing:

 

Give access to capital at fair rates, with a simple process that can turn around funds in days.

 

See for yourself, give us a go

We're passionate about your business growth

The Bigstone team banded together through a mutual passion: to offer Australian small to medium businesses compelling finance alternatives to banks and traditional finance institutions.

With longstanding careers in the financial services industry, we've witnessed firsthand the stagnation in the Australian finance market, the lack of accessible finance for growing businesses, and the need to offer more attractive investment opportunities to investors.

Our work in the US, UK, Europe and Asia has enabled us to directly experience the success of market lending alternatives and their contribution to global economies.

Together, we decided it was time to make a difference, here in Australia.
