Our Story

Bridgement offers simple finance to small businesses across South Africa, enabling them to expand their operations, take on bigger projects and bridge gaps in cash flow. We're passionate about helping our customers grow.

We're a group of data scientists and engineers that started Bridgement with a single goal – to use technology and data science to bring a new approach to traditional business finance and to minimise the complexity and costs associated with it. With this goal in mind, we built the simplest way for businesses to get finance in South Africa, offering near-instant decisions on applications and removing the need for lengthy forms and long-term commitments. With our diverse and unconventional backgrounds, we are disrupting business finance with revolutionary credit scoring models that use thousands of data points to assess the financial health of each business – all in a matter of seconds.
