Credion is one of the leading Dutch independent consultancy firms for issues of corporate finance relating to entrepreneurs and SMEs. Founded in 2001 by a group of individuals with extensive experience in banking and finance, Credion now operates a wide network throughout the Netherlands including 25 offices and over 50 professional consultants. Essentially, Credion are independent specialists seeking to bring entrepreneurs and lenders together in a financial package which is optimal for both parties. As a “Financial Engineer”, Credion assists entrepreneurs in the financing of their projects whilst periodically informing lenders of the status of their investment. In this way, the company maintains a good relationship between entrepreneur and lender and promotes continued business financing.

With regards to Symbid, Credion ensures that entrepreneurs hoping to receive investment via crowdfunding are vetted before they are eligible for our platform. In this way, the financial underpinnings of all investment proposals on the Symbid platform are independently tested. This process contributes to the security and reliability of our crowdfunding ecosystem and is particularly useful for attracting larger investments between €1,000 and €10,000.
