MarketInvoice is a business finance intermediary, which allows businesses to sell their unpaid invoices to provide working capital. It was the UK’s first online marketplace allowing companies to selectively sell outstanding invoices to raise working capital. Launched in February 2011, the platform allows small and medium-sized businesses who have outstanding invoices to trade these with institutional investors online. Investors advance cash against these future payments for a fee. As of 18 September 2015, the company has facilitated over £500 million in funding for high-growth UK businesses.
