IntelleGrow provides customized debt finance to small and growing businesses in India.
At IntelleGrow, we understand the unique challenges faced by small and growing businesses seeking to create social or environmental impact. We provide accessible and flexible debt, uniquely designed to unlock growth potential.
Most lenders typically engage in traditional collateral-based lending to enterprises operating in established industries, with at least three consecutive years of profitable, audited track record. Existing lenders capable of lending to small businesses are often prohibitively slow and complicated to deal with or impose restrictive conditions, making it difficult for fast growing businesses to secure a loan when they need it most.
IntelleGrow was established to help those enterprises access loans in a transparent way. Since 2010 IntelleGrow has served customers across a range of subsectors and geographies in India. We are registered as a Non-Banking Finance Company.
IntelleGrow is responding to the market need with a vision to deploy more than $30m (250 crores) by 2015.
