About us

Funding Guru is a business finance provider and adviser to UK firms looking for funding solutions to help them grow and remain financially strong.

Based in Leeds, we were founded in 2014 by serial entrepreneur Matt Haycox who wanted to use his experience of securing finance for his own businesses to help other business owners get access to the capital they need.

Business Finance

There are many different types of business finance, from commercial mortgages and bridging loans to cash advances and start-up loans. At Funding Guru, we provide and advise on all areas of business loans and finance.

Business Loans

Equity Finance

Sell shares in your company to an investor in exchange for cash with equity finance. Funding Guru can either provide the finance or we’ll know an investor who can.

R&D Tax Credit

The government pays you for investing in new products and services. But there can be a long wait to get the money, so get the funds quicker through an R&D tax credit loan.


There are many grant options for businesses looking for free funding. At Funding Guru, we’ll help you apply for these grants and talk you through the alternatives.

A flexible approach

It can be difficult for SMEs to be approved for funding. Many lenders have strict requirements and business owners will likely have had a finance application rejected by a mainstream lender at some point. 
At Funding Guru, we take a flexible and entrepreneurial approach to business finance decisions – if we can see your company has potential, we’ll consider your circumstances even if you have a less than ideal credit history.
