(20 August 2020) — C2FO, the world’s first market for working capital, was recently honoured as “Best SME Working Capital Innovator (UK) for 2020” by business publication Capital Finance International (CFI.co).
“It is a tremendous honour to be recognised by CFI.co for the work we do to ensure that companies of all sizes have the access they need to working capital,” said Colin Sharp, SVP for the EMEA region for C2FO. “At a time like this, when many SMEs are in tremendous need of liquidity, we believe the solutions we provide are particularly critical for corporates and their supply chains.”
In its award announcement, CFI.co noted that, of the United Kingdom’s one million-plus suppliers, 93% of them are SMEs and 70% are mico-enterprises.
The publication went on to state that, “C2FO convinced big-name buyers to support supply chains – while getting better returns on their cash than from the bank. Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and the client list has grown to include big-hitters such as Marks and Spencer, Siemens, Air France, Philips, Hewlett-Packard, Danone, Pfizer, Costco. …For a company that has brought control to cash flows, the CFI.co judging panel presents C2FO with the 2020 award for Best SME Working Capital Innovator (UK).”
