Message from the CEO
“I wanted to create a business that positively impacts small to medium businesses.”
Welcome to GRID Finance,
We are driven by the belief that small businesses are the engine of change in society. GRID enables these creators and doers to generate economic activity that creates employment because of the products they have built and services they deliver. The impact that business owners have on broader society is discreet, un-celebrated and profound. They are the people worthy of backing and support as they are the true vehicle of change in our society. We are delighted to welcome you to the GRID and wish you every success as you grow your business.
- Derek F. Butler, CEO
“It's absolutely clear as we've worked with small businesses in the last five years that they are heavily undercapitalised.”
As an Irish owned Fintech company that is disrupting the financial landscape in Ireland since 2014, we are providing a true alternative to traditional bank lending for SMEs. As the backbone of any economy, the impact that small business owners have is usually discreet and uncelebrated.
These unsung heroes are people worthy of backing and supporting. After all, small business owners provide around 41.5 per cent of Ireland’s population with jobs. SME owners should have the means to drive the Irish economy by having access to the necessary tools and resources.
We believe that small businesses are the true driver of our society and our economy. We enable creators and doers to generate economic activity, create employment, and offer their products and services.
Since its inception GRID went from strength to strength. In the last year our team has grown exponentially to now over 20 employees. And everyone is dedicated to providing you with an unparalleled experience.
