Fundbox COO Featured in CIO Review

Chief Operations Officer Prashant Fuloria was featured on the cover of the June 2018 issue of CIO Review. In the cover story, he discusses the way Fundbox redefines the lending process for small businesses by leveraging the power of cloud, artificial intelligence, and data exchange for value.

“Fundbox is giving small businesses, a new financial power by democratizing access to working capital. Business owners share a snapshot of their digital financial records. In exchange, Fundbox gives them a credit decision within minutes. And if approved they can have funds delivered to their business bank accounts as soon as the next business day. We take the concept of ‘data exchange for value’ quite literally here at Fundbox,” says Fuloria.
