About Myos

Myos offers merchants a radically new way of financing working capital quickly and easily: focused on commercial products, AI and data-driven, without annuities or personal guarantees. The idea was born out of the personal working capital needs of online merchants we knew personally- and the resulting frustration with the existing financing options.
A look back

Developed by merchants for merchants

The concept behind Myos stems from a befriended merchant who had difficulties raising working capital for the growth of his online shop - despite good figures and visibility on Amazon.

Most banks or fintechs evaluate according to classical risk metrics instead of focusing on the products and their sales potential. What was missing was a solution that would meet the requirements of fast-moving online business and break new ground in risk assessment.

Shortly afterward, at the beginning of 2018, Myos was founded: The world's first product-backed financing for merchants
