      , The PIE Micro-Investment platform offers viable start-up companies who do not yet meet the requirements of the existing angel investment community direct access to the resources and funding they need to progress with no up front costs. The highly automated solution reduces risk, increase the investor audience to include suppliers and provides transparency to enable investment in a sector currently starved of investment.

      , which provides loans to entrepreneurs whose businesses are located in the Greater Manchester or Cheshire area who are struggling to raise commercial loans from mainstream lenders.
