Will Brand AB
We are growing faster than we expected and our webshop for companies needed a boost at the same time as we needed to prepay the production of two large autumn projects.
At Krea, it works surprisingly quickly and you get nice and good treatment from their service staff. The process was much smoother compared to the old fashioned "banking world".
Pierre Gasslander, CEO
The Italian Cousins
We are starting a major expansion where we will open two new restaurants. Krea's advisors helped us find the right financing, while we could focus on the expansion. It was time-efficient and by Krea exposing different banks to competition, we also secured good terms for the new financing.
Enrico Artoni, Founder
Saltö Marin AB
I think it was a good way to compare different conditions, especially now that the big banks are not as interested. The process via 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
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.
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.
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.
