    ABOUT US.
    Finmo empathises with the day to day struggle of freelancers, self-employed and SME’s. We
    understand the immense satisfaction and equally immense pressure that comes with being
    your own boss. Financial Services – bankers, insurers, lenders – make it tougher, not easier,
    on the self-employed and small businesses. We aim to fix that.

    In the UK, there are 2 million freelancers who are a subset of 5.5 million micro businesses
    (0-9 people). This population has grown over 60% since 2000 and represents 33% of the UK
    employment market and 22% of the total cumulative turnover of all businesses in the UK.

    Finmo was built and incubated at Founders Factory. FF takes a unique approach to
    business creation and leverages the scale and insights from their forward thinking corporate
    investors to start and grow technology businesses. They’re on a mission to create a
    repeatable and reliable methodology to build truly innovative start-ups that will define the
    future. Finmo is the eighth start-up to roll out FF’s incubator program.
