Peter Davos

“Beehive helped provide me with the short term financing I needed to more than double my team members and roll out new product lines, helping accelerate my growth at a crucial period. A great resource for entrepreneurs seeking to secure financing at reasonable terms for the short term. I was impressed by their professionalism, responsiveness and transparency. Their rates are competitive and their processes are seamless. I would highly recommend them, they are a much needed resource in the UAE!”

Stevi Lowmass

“My business got a great deal on Beehive. Minimising costs is critical for any small business, but this was beyond all expectations and means I can now use the funds saved on the interest to help grow the business. I would certainly recommend Beehive to other businesses. Its fast, easy and has made a huge difference to my growth plans.”

Daniel-Enewhere

“Since debt financing wasn’t easily available through the banks, we tried the 21st century method of crowdfunding and it went very, very well. Beehive do all the things that make sense, and that you would expect the bank to do. The big difference is speed. We had the money in the bank 2 days after the auction closed. We did one of the largest transactions on the platform, it was successful and we believe we can raise more this way.”

Daniel Zywietz, CEO, Enerwhere
