Interview with Mike Bristow

About Mike Bristow: Mike Bristow is the CEO and Co-Founder of CrowdProperty (, the UK's leading specialist property project online lending platform. With a background in strategy consultancy advising major corporates and private equity funds on corporate strategy and buyouts, Mike has been investing in property since 2002, investing in high potential proptech businesses since 2014 and sits on the Investment Committee of Pi Labs, Europe’s first and most prolific venture capital fund investing exclusively in early stage ventures in the proptech vertical. Mike has an MBA from London Business School, was named in the Peer2Peer Finance News Power 50 list in both 2018 and 2019, is a founding board member of the Innovate Finance 36H Group alongside other leading peer-to-peer lending platforms and was named 'Entrepreneur of the Year' at the Midlands Business Awards 2020.

About CrowdProperty: CrowdProperty is a fintech/proptech online-lending innovator, exceptionally efficiently matching the demand (quality property professionals undertaking quality property projects) and supply (retail/institutional investors) of capital for value-creating property projects, delivering a better deal for all – borrowers, lenders, the under-supplied UK housing environment and spend in the UK economy.

Actual property development and investment experience lies at the heart of the business meaning hands-on, expertise-led due diligence and loan monitoring. Lending is focused on the SME property professional market, a key segment for supplying much needed UK housing stock, which is poorly and inefficiently served by traditional funding sources. CrowdProperty funds property professionals undertaking any sort of property project (including auction purchases and bridging), structuring the perfect funding product and doing so with greater speed, ease, certainty and expertise than anyone in the market. As property people providing property finance, we intimately understand the market needs. CrowdProperty has lent £100,000,000, funding the development of over 1,200 homes worth over £200m since 2014 and has grown both lending and revenue by over 1,000% over the last 3 years.

CrowdProperty is authorised and regulated by the FCA, is an HMRC approved ISA / IFISA manager, attracts significant SSAS Pension and SIPP Pension capital and is a founding member and only property specialist platform in the Innovate Finance 36H Group (and formerly on the board of the P2PFA / Peer-to-Peer Finance Association). CrowdProperty became the first and only property P2P lender to become Brismo Verified, independently validating CrowdProperty’s market-leading performance, showing significant outperformance of Brismo's UK P2P Index.
