Xero is a beautiful, easy-to-use platform that helps small businesses and their accounting and bookkeeping advisors grow and thrive. 
At Xero, our purpose is to make life better for people in small business, their advisors, and communities around the world. This purpose sits at the centre of everything we do. We support our people to do the best work of their lives so that they can help small businesses succeed through better tools, information and connections. Because when they succeed they make a difference, and when millions of small businesses are making a difference, the world is a more beautiful place.
Xero & Waddle
We are on a big journey at Waddle, pushing the boundaries of lending for small businesses.  We started our journey five years ago, building an industry leading product to enable simple, quick and digital access to lending for small businesses.  The product enables the customer to manage their daily cash flow requirements to suit the way they manage their business and works hand and hand with cloud accounting software.  Our product was so successful that we now enable other lenders in multiple markets to use the product for their own customers.  
We were recently acquired by the global cloud accounting software company, Xero, who saw a beautiful connection between our purpose “making it easy for small businesses to access lending” and their purpose “helping small businesses to thrive worldwide”.  When these purposes align, we’re not only helping small businesses, we’ll be building a stronger economy that can change the world.
