From humble beginnings in a home office, Tom and Mark Caesar have grown Positive Lending Solutions as an Australian small business on the rise to a stage of rapid growth (200% YOY, last four years).
We have a passion for supporting entrepreneurship, start-ups and mentoring small businesses in the areas of marketing, technology and community engagement.
Positive Lending Solutions have set themselves apart from their competition through core values in entrepreneurship, developing custom software applications and adopting technology early to increase business efficiencies at scale.
We’re committed to encouraging the growth of innovation and business acumen in young people, and to that end we are proud to introduce the Positive Lending Solutions Entrepreneur Scholarship.
