About Vane

Vane, formerly BillFront, provides digital businesses with easy access to debt financing that is tailored to their needs.

Our customers are all ambitious, fast-growing businesses that operate tech-enabled business models around the world. They use Vane to finance runway extensions, working capital, growth investments, M&A, refinancings and/or other projects. 

After being founded in 2015 in Berlin, we have grown to a diverse team of experienced finance and technology professionals with a local presence in the U.S., the UK and Germany.

Our mission is to propel our clients forward and support their strategic ambitions and dynamic capital needs. We are building long-lasting relationships with our clients for which we continuously develop innovative financing solutions that cater to their needs rather than retro-fit their needs to our offer.
