About

To help small businesses grow, Bridgement offers simple finance to small businesses across South Africa. Their loans enable businesses to expand their operations, take on bigger projects or bridge gaps in cash flow.

What sets Bridgement apart is its use of technology and data science to bring a new approach to traditional business finance. This allows Bridgement to simplify and reduce the costs of taking out a loan, and to offer “near-instant decisions on applications”.

“We are all about enabling growth for SMEs – helping them improve cash flow to take on bigger projects with longer payment terms. This requires speed of access, simplicity and transparency of terms. Our invoice financing product delivers that,” Daniel Goldberg, co-founder of Bridgement said in an interview with IT News Africa.

Bridgement focuses on invoice factoring, a working capital solution that offers the advantages of a line of credit with same-day funding speed. Their credit facilities range from R10 000 to R1-million.
