About LenderKit

LenderKit is a flexible white-label investment software for crowdfunding platforms, private equity and venture capital firms that want to automate operations, attract more investors and fundraisers and close more private capital deals.

Our story

  • 2017

    Before LenderKit, we focused on the custom fintech software development services using our in-house team.

    Having developed around 10 custom crowdfunding platforms between 2015 and 2017, we decided to create a solution that would consolidate our experience into one software framework for investment firms.

    The software would help our clients reduce the development costs and speed up the process of launching new crowdfunding platforms for regulatory sandboxes and beyond.

  • 2018

    We’ve done some competitor analysis and found out that most of the crowdfunding solution providers focused on pure SaaS white-label platforms. It worked well for local markets, but for the international ones, an opportunity for customization would be a much better choice.

    So, we’ve built a prototype and started conducting demo sessions.

    We decided to focus on the UK as our primary market due to its maturity and proven appetite for crowdfunding solutions. As planned, we got out first client that launched on LenderKit.

    Between 2018 and 2019, we went all into development and created a robust white-label crowdfunding framework that allowed our clients to set up a portal quickly.

    We heavily modified the prototype, added more features and functionality, fully redesigned the portal’s architecture and improved security.

  • 2019

    In 2019, we partnered with the leading payment gateways – MangoPay, LemonWay, Goji Investments and other providers.

    Apart from that, we integrated LenderKit with the CMS and developed 4 website templates to help our clients get started quickly. We’ve also tapped into other markets such as the MENA, mainly, Saudi Arabia and UAE and started making first steps in the USA market.  Also this year, some of our first clients Forus and Camly went live.

  • 2020

    In 2020, we completely rebuilt the LenderKit software architecture and developed more investment flows, security features, and functionality like GDPR module, permissions, auto-investing and many more. We also redesigned the admin back office and investor portal and built a mobile app prototype.

    One of our clients, Charm Impact, launched a crowdfunding platform and raised 272% of their target amount on CrowdCube.

    In November 2020, we got published in the Microsoft Marketplace.

  • 2021

    In 2021, we tailored LenderKit software to help our clients ease up compliance requirements worldwide. More precisely, we released the US and EU compliance modules. 

    For the US market, we released new functionality that supports Reg CF, A, D and S regulation types. 

    Also this year, European Commission adopted new crowdfunding rules for ECSPs. To prepare for the market changes, we updated LenderKit and were the first to launch a regulatory compliance module for European crowdfunding platforms and investment marketplaces. 

    We’ve also significantly improved the out-of-box package and included support of payment gateways such as Lemonway, FundAmerica and MANGOPAY and also KYC providers such as Jumio. Apart from that, we’ve built a blockchain integration with Polymath. 

    On the features side, we added private data room, appropriateness test, wallet-based and direct investing, multi-language support and more.

    With the updated software architecture and more flexibility, we also introduced better pricing options to new customers worldwide. 

  • 2022

    In 2022, we focused on strategic, technology and branding expansion. While 7 of our customers went live in the US, UK, Europe and even New Zealand, we kept creating new features to enhance our services and crowdfunding software capabilities. 

    We introduced cap table management, universal login, anti-bot protection, agreement builder, partnered and integrated with North Capital to offer escrow and custody solutions in the US.

    In terms of media and offline presence, we’ve visited the 7th EuroCrowd Conference in Spain. We’ve also run an annual survey among crowdfunding platforms through our sister project CrowdSpace that has now become the largest European crowdfunding platform directory which features over 450 marketplaces.
