Brickflow wins 'Technological Innovation of the Year'

We won! We’re absolutely thrilled to announce that Brickflow won the Technological Innovation of the Year Award at the NACFB Commercial Lender Awards 2023!


The NACFB Commercial Lender Awards 2023

The prestigious awards acknowledge and reward excellence in commercial lending, as well as allowing NACFB Members to thank the Association’s Patrons and Partners for their ongoing commitment to supporting brokers and their SME clients.
And of course, to recognise the work and accomplishments of the industry’s finest, there was a glittering, glass-chinking awards ceremony. The Brickflow Team, kitted out in our best black-tie outfits, headed along to Westminster Plaza last week to join the fun.


There was champagne flowing, live music got shoulders shuffling and hosts TV presenter and comedian Dara Ò Briain, ably supported by renowned auctioneer Jonny Gould, kept the crowd amused.
With 19 categories, the NACFB Commercial Lender Awards recognises those leading the way in every aspect of the market, from Best Challenger Bank to Service Excellence and Deal of the Year.
Congratulations to all the winners.

We Won!

And of course, a huge congrats to the Brickflow Team!

‘The Technological Innovation of the Year Award celebrates organisations that have embraced technology as a driving force for progress, delivering cutting-edge solutions that elevate the industry and redefine customer experiences.’

We were up against some serious competition, from the almighty Shawbrook Bank, to Nucleus Commercial Finance and YouLend, and whilst we know Brickflow is making inroads in dragging the CRE finance industry into the 21st Century, winning such a highly prized accolade was a fantastic surprise.

We’re delighted to be recognised for the work we’re doing and to scoop up the hardware!


What Brickflow brings to the market

We created Brickflow to radically improve the CRE finance process for brokers, lenders, borrowers and everyone in between. We’ve just started our journey, but since we began in 2020 we have;

  • Launched the CRE industry’s first end-to-end loan sourcing and application system for development finance, bridging loans and soon-to-be commercial mortgages, revolutionising the way brokers and borrowers access funding
  • Enabled brokers and borrowers to search 85+ lenders and apply directly via one digital platform in under 30 minutes
  • Introduced embedded finance to the commercial property industry with Brickflow Enterprise, allowing brokers to take their businesses digital overnight
  • £7bn+ of development finance searches in year one
  • £600m+ of applications made through the platform in year one
  • Secured a DIP in just 8 minutes – needless to say, that’s an industry record!

“The true power of Brickflow is its ability to simplify the complex process of sourcing finance. With its user-friendly interface and excellent customer support, this platform is undoubtedly a game-changer. Having this technology available will positively transform the borrowing process.” (Marc Champ, CEO, Wharf Financial)

We’re excited to keep innovating and growing, but it’s only with the support of our partners that we can continue to deliver even better products that help your business grow too.

Thank you!

Thank you to NACFB for acknowledging our commitment to improving the CRE finance process and to every NACFB member and lender who supported us with their vote.
Your vote means our product is making things better for you, which is exactly what we set out to do.


We’d also like to thank everyone who uses our platform, helping us to ensure securing finance is never an obstacle to property development and investment.

Brickflow is driving change – don’t get left behind

Brickflow has saved hundreds of thousands of hours for brokers and millions of pounds for their borrowers.
The Technological Innovation of the Year Award demonstrates that we are at the forefront of delivering and deploying cutting-edge tech that’s transforming the finance industry for all. Fintech and embedded finance are here to stay, and we want anyone in the CRE sector to embrace the advancements, so their business doesn’t get left behind. 
Imagine going back to a world without finance solutions like ApplePay or Stripe, or not being able to instantly compare mortgage options and car loans – it’s never going to happen. Brickflow offers the same trajectory and seamless transaction process for our industry, and the only way is forward.


We hope that being acknowledged by such a respected institution, in front of an audience of industry thought leaders and innovators that have the power to advance our sector, will bring our platform to more people. And the more people using Brickflow, the more transparent and democratic the entire market becomes for everyone.
