Meet Streamlion

Anything is possible if you have the right advice and are backed up with the detailed, accurate, quality information and documents you need.

A quote from one of our customers, Hafsah Jamil, after we secured her 3rd business loan.

Finance is key to starting up your business and to growing it.

But the language that finance companies use and the detailed business information they ask for often feels impossible.  And let’s be honest, with only 48% of loan offers made for BME Entrepreneurs, you don’t expect that it will work anyway.

Streamlion don’t believe that this should be the case.

We’ve been working with BME Entrepreneurs for over 5 years, securing £11million of loans, with a success rate of 92% on the loans we apply for.

We work in partnership with the BME community, hand holding you through the process. We create the business plan and cashflow forecasts that you need to secure your finance.  We then work with the lenders to ensure a successful outcome, allowing you to complete your dream of a successful business.

Our promise to you:

  • We will do everything we can to ensure any loan or finance application is successful and within weeks, if we can, rather than months.
  • We will always be respectful and professional.
  • We will ensure you get value for money from any advice we give.
  • We will support you all the way.
