Fundbox’s AI-powered platform provides access to financial tools that enable small business owners to cover business-critical operating expenses.

Their AI drives better, faster decisions – from application to underwriting and decisioning, Fundbox’s process is fully automated, and 99% of the time there is no human intervention, enabling them to serve customers at scale at a lower cost. 

“Our company is on a mission to unlock growth for small businesses by providing fast and easy access to financial tools. AI has been core to our approach, allowing us to scale quickly through automation while increasing access to capital through superior predictions and credit decisions,” said Prashant Fuloria, CEO of Fundbox. “With this unbeatable advantage, we look forward to solving even more financial pain points for small businesses in innovative ways. Thank you to AI Breakthrough for this exciting recognition.”

Fundbox has invested $100 million into its AI infrastructure, including its systems, people, and models, which continually improve and become more accurate with more data. The resulting technology has been integrated throughout the company, enabling Fundbox to make better decisions across the entire lifecycle of the customer, from identifying prospects to underwriting and ongoing assessment. Ultimately, the company’s AI platform drives a superior customer experience and better business outcomes.   

“Financial services for small businesses have historically been ignored by traditional institutions and early fintech players. Fundbox is completely reinventing this sector through AI to deliver a digital-first financial platform for SMBs,” said James Johnson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. “Small businesses need financial tools to help them grow, and Fundbox is delivering an advanced AI-powered platform to deliver on this need. We offer our sincerest congratulations to the entire Fundbox team on winning our ‘Best Decision Management Company’ award.”

This year’s program attracted more than 2,850 nominations from over 17 different countries throughout the world.
