Financing service for small businesses

Krea Technology AB ("Krea") helps small and medium-sized companies to get easy access to the best possible financing terms for their company.

We do this by letting up to 30 banks and other lenders compete in our platform.

We distinguish ourselves by collaborating with most lenders in the market.

Krea also offers all financing products, including business loans, business credit, real estate loans, factoring and leasing. Finally, we are the only financing service that supports businesses by making business and liquidity plans for companies with a larger and more complex financing need.

We have so far helped over 20,000 companies and have offices in Stockholm and Helsinki.

Will Brand AB

  • Trade
  • Revenue: 5-10m
  • Loan: 0.5m

We are growing faster than expected, and our business webshop (www.willbrand.se) needed an uplift, while we also needed to prepay the production for two significant fall projects.

At Krea, it surprisingly works quickly, and you receive a pleasant and good treatment from their service personnel. The process was significantly smoother compared to the old-fashioned 'banking world'."

The Italian Cousins

  • Restaurant
  • Revenue: 15-20m
  • Loan: 2-3m

We are embarking on a major expansion, opening two new restaurants. Krea's advisors helped us find the right financing, allowing us to focus on the expansion. It was time-efficient, and by having Krea compete with different banks, we also ensured favorable terms for the new financing.

  • Revenue: 10-15m
  • Loan: 5-10m

I found it to be a good way to compare different terms, especially now when major banks are not as interested. The process through Krea is significantly faster and saves time compared to going directly to the bank.

Why we exist

It has historically been difficult for SMEs to get financing

Small and medium-sized companies account for as many as four out of five new jobs in Sweden and thus form the basis for the country's economic development and welfare. Unfortunately, over 50% of entrepreneurs find it difficult to get external financing to enable new investments and grow their business.

We make it easier to find the right financing

One factor that makes it difficult to find financing is that entrepreneurs do not know which banks or other lenders can offer the best terms for their particular business. We want to change that by enabling entrepreneurs to easily gain access to up to 30 banks and other lenders through a digital and time-efficient process. In this way, we ensure that more companies can realize their visions and contribute to the creation of more jobs.

Our culture is characterized by

Sincerity

We believe that the group is significantly smarter than any single individual, regardless of age, race, gender or position. To ensure that the best ideas and solutions win, we therefore expect all team members to express their opinion, especially when you feel differently.

Proactivity

We believe that the most talented employees thrive best in an environment with a high level of independence and responsibility. In return, we expect each team member to take a leadership role by proactively and continuously proposing and implementing new and progressive ideas that help achieve the vision that all businesses should have easy access to the best possible financing.

Transparency

We believe that trust is a cornerstone of all effective relationships and that transparency, in turn, is a prerequisite for establishing trust. We therefore attach great importance to ensuring that our customers, partners, employees and potential new employees always feel that they have all the information they need to be able to make decisions.
