App-y days

Collctiv is a Manchester payment fintech founded in September 2019. When thousands of new users signed up to the app during the pandemic, it needed to get cash in place to rapidly scale its operations. When the pandemic hit, the business was still in its early stages.


But as people looked for new cashless ways to collect money, Collctiv experienced a huge surge in demand. We connected Collctiv to GC Angels, a collection of investment finance specialists. With GC Angel’s backing, the business was able to secure a £200,000 investment, and is now setting its sights on global growth.
