Founded in 2017 by Sho Sugihara and Chris Butcher, Portify is the first UK fintech company to design inclusive financial services for those with non-standard backgrounds, including flexible workers. Portify was created with one goal in mind: to ensure that strivers and hard workers have access to the financial products they need to achieve their dreams. Portify’s community powered mobile app is now trusted by over 20,000 users. The app offers fair and essential financial products such as credit building, interest-free loans and tools to help users budget and save. Portify has raised £8.3M in funding from leading fintech and technology venture capital firms such as Redalpine, Kindred Capital and Entrepreneur First.
