2018, What a Year It Was

Author: Irene Malatesta | December 31, 2018

A quick recap of 2018 at Fundbox

As the year comes to a close, we’re taking a moment to reflect with gratitude on the milestones we’ve achieved.

From releasing new products so we can serve you better, to growing and investing in our team, we’re proud of what we’ve done together. We look forward to another year of helping you grow your business and achieve your dreams!

In 2018….

We Launched Fundbox Fuse

In January, Fundbox launched Fuse, an integration that enables our partners to offer access to Fundbox to their small business customers.

Fuse is a grey labeled, light integration that allows partners to meet the capital needs of their clients from within their workflow. If approved for credit, the customer can draw funds by clicking a button within the partner’s workflow, so they’ll always know where to go for credit. Partners love this because the customer also has another great reason to return to the partner’s solution.

We Introduced Fundbox Pay

In 2018, Fundbox launched Fundbox Pay, our new credit and payments platform for business to business (B2B) companies.

We designed Fundbox Pay to be simple, frictionless, and fast. If you sell products or services using Fundbox Pay, you will get paid once a buyer confirms the payment and funds arrive as soon as the next business day, similar to how business-to-consumer (B2C) merchants get paid at the point of sale using credit cards.

When you accept payment through Fundbox Pay, you no longer have to extend net terms or trade credit, and you won’t have to deal with chasing unpaid invoices in order to reconcile your accounts receivables. Instead, simply invite your customers to begin transacting with you on Fundbox Pay. Fundbox can take care of the rest by providing your approved customers with convenient, flexible financing, and net terms.

We Released New Mobile Apps

More and more of us are conducting business on smartphones. For business owners, that includes managing your credit, invoices, and payments. Now, you can manage your Fundbox account from your mobile device more easily.

If you missed this month’s announcement, we have good news: you can now access you Fundbox account using either the Android or iOS Fundbox app. If you have previously connected your accounting software, you are invited to use the app. (You still need to sign up for Fundbox and get approved first.)

We Nabbed Some Exciting Awards

While we don’t like to toot our own horn too much, we were very proud to receive honors from several organizations this year, including Goldman Sachs, CB Insights, FinTech Breakthrough, and the Israeli Atlas Awards.

Thanks to all of these organizations for recognizing our work, and thanks to our customers—you’re the reason we do everything we do.

We’re Investing In Our Team

This year saw huge growth in the Fundbox team. We hired 78 new team members in San Francisco and Tel Aviv—and gained 2 new office dogs (woof!). Those new team members included additions to every team at Fundbox, all the better to support our customers and improve the services we offer.

Our focus on building a solid team and investing in our talent seems to be paying off: Wealthfront recently recognized Fundbox as one of its “career-launching” companies for the second year in a row.
