Common answers

How is Qred different?

We've invested heavily in a modern, digital solution, with no expensive branch network. By automating data extraction and through smart analysis of hundreds of data points we are able to quickly get to an evalution of most businesses. As far as we know, nobody else in Northern Europe can approve and pay out a business loan faster than Qred. What's also unique is you only pay for each month you have the loan. Simple and straightforward.

How do I apply

It's easy to apply and takes about 60 seconds, and there's no cost to apply. There are 3 easy steps:

  1. Fill in a short form (desired amount, organisation number, e-mail och mobile phone).
  2. Additional information can be sent to improve your offer. During normal work hours you can expect an offer within an hour.
  3. You decide if you want to go forward after you get our offer. Upon approval with BankID we will pay out the loan the same day, normally the same day.

When will the loan be paid out?

The loan is paid out the same day after you accept our offer, as long as that happens by 17:00. Depending on holidays and weekends, there can be a couple of days before the funds reach your business account.

Who can apply?

All limited liability business, partnerships, sole proprietorships / traders, and more can apply and be approved a loan. It can be a proud, old business, or a brand new startup, large or small. We work with businesses in virtually every industry, from north to south - even businesses with a checkered credit history can qualify. We evaluateeach business individually - the key for us is that there is a solid business idea and qualified business owners behind the company.

The Story Behind Qred

Once upon a time, a relatively young and hopeful entrepreneur started a small business. Everything was fresh, exciting and a bit unfamiliar. The first thing that needed to be done was to obtain a bank certificate stating that the founder’s hard-earned and saved start-up equity capital had been deposited. With pride, the entrepreneur went to the nearest bank to announce that he wanted to open an account for his new business and deposit one hundred thousand kroner into his account.

He enthusiastically described his plans to the inscrutable bank clerk, who asked, “but why have you chosen to come to our bank?” The entrepreneur was taken aback, since this bank had received the prestigious “Best Swedish Commercial Bank” award, but he calmly replied because it seemed like a good business bank. After 15 minutes, the entrepreneur was informed that the bank did not believe in his idea and that the bank therefore rejected his customer application...

Who is Qred?

Qred is an expert in business loans and company financing. Founded in 2015, Qred’s mission is to power entrepreneurs and help businesses grow, invest and expand. We provide flexible business loans without start-up costs, hidden fees or hassle: exactly how business lending should be.

What are the costs associated with Qred loans?

Qred does not have a standard interest fee, instead, we make individual assessments for each company - offering them a personalised quote that best matches their needs. Qred does offer full transparency and easy-to-understand loan terms. For example, we have no start-up costs, hidden fees and don’t work with lock-in periods. Instead, customers have the option to repay the loan in full at any time, giving entrepreneurs the option to remain in control of their finances. What do our customers pay monthly? We charge a standard service fee for our loans (based on loan term, individual credit rating and amount), combined with a standard amortisation fee. Combine the two (service + amortisation) and those are the standard monthly payments, without unexpected surprises. Clear, easy and transparent: that is why savvy entrepreneurs choose Qred for business loans and financing.

Who can become a partner?

Businesses that sell goods and/or services to other businesses, for example, lease companies, IT-services, inventory and business supplies, professional cleaners, financial advisors, etc. are eligible for a Qred partnership. If you or your company cater to the business market, not the consumer market, you can become a Qred partner and help other businesses find the right financing for your products.

A word from the CEO

All companies may need some extra cash from time to time. We want it to be easy, fast and safe to get a business loan. That’s why we started Qred.

From the start, Qred received a fantastic reception from tens of thousands of small businesses. It feels almost unreal that it is actually possible to challenge the old established banks without being particularly large or strong. My conclusion is that heart and ambition mean more than muscle and tradition.

We are today one of the fastest growing fin-tech companies in the Nordic region, and we have already lent over SEK 2 billion to the smallest companies. It is money that comes in handy – many of our customers stand without traditional bank financing, even though they are run by competent and skilled contractors.

The banks are stuck in a costly costume and small business owners are seen as inconveniences, and not as partners. According to a recent survey, only every 10th company with up to 20 employees has loans from the bank. At the same time, over 80% of all new jobs in Sweden are created today by small companies.

Qred offers loans to small companies in the Nordic region and in the Netherlands. The loans are relatively small (up to around SEK 1 million), and have relatively short maturities (the loans are normally repaid with up to 12 monthly instalments). By limiting the loan amounts and the credit period, we keep the risk down.

Thanks to our unique scoring model and our large and diversified customer base, we have relatively small and very predictable loan losses, which in turn leads to good profitability.

Qred gives back

Powering businesses is something that we do in our everyday work. As we speak we are powering more than 10,000 businesses and by doing so we have helped create more than 5,000 new jobs.

But we want to make a change everywhere. This is what we are doing to change the world, little by little.

Powering entrepreneurs all over the world

Today, many people in the world live in poverty and lack the basic needs such as food, housing, access to health care or basic education. However, poverty is about so much more than a lack of money. It can be about living with very small margins and not being able to afford to let the children go to school or seek medical care in the event of illness and not have influence over their own lives and future. This is where Hand in Hand helps people make their own living conditions - with their own power but with our help.

Both Qred and Hand in Hand believe that entrepreneurship is the way out of poverty. So together with Hand in Hand, Qred is sponsoring Ngusishi Village in Kenya. In the village the residents are taught how to run and develop their own businesses. So far we have mobilized 11 groups in Ngusishi village with 291 members, 87 % of whom are women. The goal is to have a total 350 living in the village by the end of the project.

Together, these members support 1,230 dependents, mostly children.

Women are of central importance in development work, where they have an important social and economic impact on both the family and society. Educating and empowering women is the key to fighting poverty: Studies show that women generally invest 90 percent of their income on family well-being, the corresponding figure for men is 30-40 percent.
