The gaming industry is exciting, but most lenders don’t understand the challenges or the potential. At Rangewell, we cover the entire lending market, and we know the lenders who can help. Our expertise and contacts let us help you find the most competitive funding for your gaming business.

The first 18 months until we shipped meant constant costs. I found affordable answers with Rangewell’s help.

I set up a company to develop a game i’d been working in for years. I had to put my house on the line, but it was well worth it.

I needed to equip a large team and spend three quarters of a million to do it. Rangewell found me the lenders who could help.

Helping you build your profits

Lending tailored to the needs of your business

We can help you find the most appropriate finance for any stage of your business development, letting you make the big repayments when your business has started to grow.

Protect your cashflow

Borrowing funds as you need them - rather than trying to deal with costs from your operating budget - can help protect your cashflow.

Asset funding reduces risk

Most lending must be ‘secured’ on an asset of some kind that the lender may take if you don’t keep up the payments. If you were unable to repay the lender could simply repossess the equipment to cover their loss. No other assets are at risk.

‘Jigsaw’ funding

A single type of finance may not be enough. We can help you set up jigsaw finance - with the most appropriate type of finance for each particular need - to help you build your business.

Scaled for serious businesses

Mezzanine Finance providers look at large scale businesses with £3 million valuation as a minimum.

Specialist lenders for the gaming sector

Some asset funding providers may specialise in particular sectors. At Rangewell, we can help you find the most appropriate lenders for the games sector.

Getting the right funding arrangement is essential

There are many forms of business finance. Getting the most appropriate type for your particular needs is essential to avoid paying too much.
