SME lending is known for its complexity, high risk and high cost. The brainchild of serial entrepreneur Craig Moore, supported by Rick Pudner (former group CEO of Emirates NBD bank), Beehive is an online lending platform that directly connects businesses looking for finance with investors that can provide funding support for their growth. In this episode, Macky O’Sullivan speaks to Craig Moore (Founder & CEO of Beehive) about the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s first peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platform to be regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority and the efforts being made to close the gap for SME Finance.
